    An album that you initially bought for the cover – Ever Feel like Killing Your Boss? by the Feederz was released in 1983, oh, what a concept for an album cover… The initial release of this LP had an album jacket that was covered with fine black sandpaper on the front and back… An album jacket that could literally ruin anything it touches, including any album covers that you put it next to… Sliding it in and out of a collection shelf would destroy both it’s neighboring lps… What a punk concept. The album itself was excellent punk rock too, songs ranging from a cover of Have you ever been Mellow, to Fuck You! here’s another song from that LP, 1984…
