The Exploited - Live at the Whitehouse


Everything about the Exploited has always been extreme from their political positions to their live shows (which have erupted in violence on more than one occasion). The cover of Live at the Whitehouse is no exception. I spent a fair amount of time in high school trying to recreate this cover on notebook covers and folders and, as I'd hoped, it irritated a few people. The Exploited aren't the smartest band on the planet, but at least they're still stirring the pot today just as they did with this 1985 album.

Not the best artwork, but a jolting image that makes its point. Effective, even if not beautifully drawn.

By 1985 they had like only four studio albums, but three live albums out. Easily the best cover of their live albums.

I can see why you'd scratch that on your books, even if everyone else did Totally Exploited! I like the shock value of this too, like Death Before Dishonor. Then again, I think Horror Epics is just waiting to get analyzed too, eh?

Skull spat on Wattie at an Exploited show back in the 80s.
