Revolutionary free-thinkers Hard-fi have shocked the music world to it's very foundations this week. On September 4th those edgy ATM-botherers will release their second slab of exxxtreme truth-rock and guess what? It wont have any cover art! To make sure you realize that theres no cover art they've helpfully provided a cover with the words NO COVER ART printed in planet sized white letters on a yellow background. Frontman Richard Archer had this to say:

''We wanted to break the rules. We don't need some airbrushed band shot just because it might be expected. Fuck that. This is about the music'' {source: NME.com}

This isn't the first time the working class heroes from Staines have rattled the worlds tiny brain cage, 2005's zeigeist defining Stars of CCTV dealt with super-important issues like working all week so you can go have a pint on friday, having no credit on your phone, skipping the bus fare and contemplating running off on your girlfriend because she's pregnant. Yeah thats right, the shit the MAN doesn't want you knowing about! Can you handle it? Do you care?
