The Stone Roses Begging You

The Stone Roses have left Begging You out of their current setlist, but their 27-date summer tour is in its infancy. Will it, and others from their exquisite catalog appear? Given where Ian Brown is these days, music-wise, I would have to guess that it will get an airing at some point.

Who knows?

Begging You features a wonderful cover concept from John Squire, and, for those who are too young to recognize what a diskette looked like when sliced open and covered in paint, well, here you are.

This what makes John Squire such a genius of conceptual art--he can take these elements and make something out of them that holds up. Why 24 diskettes, colored this way, and arranged as if randomly? Well, why not? It's a great cover.
