Buttress O’Kneel (the ‘BOK’ part of the ongoing collaborative project with Lucas Darklord) unveiled this wearable design to celebrate the release of BOK DARKLORD’s latest album ‘Lulu’. Released through the independent online label ‘Wood and Wire’, ‘Lulu’ is epic piratical plunderphonia on an immense scale, warping both Lou Reed and Metallica to re-create their failed double album of 2011. The re-created BOK DARKLORD double album is available here.
Here’s what it says on the official website:
“In late 2011, the musical giants Metallica and Lou Reed released the universally-despised ‘Lulu’, 2 discs of collaborative work that one reviewer claimed was not quite as worthwhile as “wanking into a sock.” Inspired, two other musical giants, Buttress O’Kneel and Lucas Darklord, decided to take it upon themselves to create a Lulu that was slightly better than wanking into a sock. They did this by each separately sampling and remixing material by Lou Reed or Metallica (with one artist on each track ‘playing’ the ‘Lou Reed’ while the other would ‘play’ the ‘Metallica’). These two separate remixes were then edited into collaborative Lulu pieces, which were given identical names to the tracks on Metallica and Lou Reed’s Lulu, and exactly the same track lengths, without bearing any resemblence to their odious counterparts.
In essence, BOK DARKLORD’s Lulu is a revisionist concept album that attempts to replace the original work, acting as though that repugnant flop never happened at all. And best of all, it can still be enjoyed while wanking into a sock."
