TVD's Daily Wax | The Teardrop Explodes "Wilder"

When asked if the Teardrop Explodes would ever get back together, Julian Cope quipped: "Would you ever return to having your mother wipe your asshole?" Which begs the question, are Page's, Plant's, and Jones' mothers still around? I wonder?

The Teardrop Explodes - Bent Out Of Shape (Mp3)
The Teardrop Explodes - Seven Views Of Jerusalem (Mp3)
The Teardrop Explodes - Pure Joy (Mp3)
The Teardrop Explodes - The Culture Bunker (Mp3)
The Teardrop Explodes - Like Leila Khaled Said (Mp3)

This panel from Daredevil #77 (housed in TVD HQ) inspired the band's name.

Was that the cover in the US then? I prefer this one don't you? Lovely record whatever the packaging...

This is a rerelease pressing which most likely explains the differing art. I actually think I prefer this one posted, though. Design is oh so subjective -- which I learn in my day job -- daily.

Ah, very true. The map is not the terrain, perception is truth, there is no reality, mine's a pint.
