You don't necessarily have to like their music, but I'm sure it helps.

Atoms for Peace

They're lying on the floor but the photo was taken upside down, making it look like they're on the ceiling.

Atoms for Peace have great pictures.

For press releases I generally prefer "simple" shots, basically an image that doesn't clash my
impression of the music and where the artists don't come across as dull or complete idiots (like a certain band since 2000.)


something like this

I like the last one mainly cause it's ridiculous. Not sure why Topper and Simonon are baseball players but let's go with it I guess. They probably thought it was funny because what the fuck is baseball anyway.

It from 1996 in Olympia, Washington...
The wrench thing confuses me to lol

its so far up it looks like it must be holding the nut in place

if you take the wrench away the space for the first fret seems incredibly long

i really.don't.know.

he actually looks older in that 92 pic than in the 96 one. i guess it was the hard drugs keeping him thin and lean.

Possibly? He is using a Floyd Rose trem.

Baseball bats aren't just for playing baseball.

I really like that one of The Damned.

Well yeah but simonon has the hat to go with it and is holding it like a player. However Topper does hold it like he wants to fuck somebody up. It could be a good Warriors-y theme for a band anyway.

It doesn't seem to be touching it but i suppose the pressure from the strings would help hold it down. Still there is such a thing as glue...

All i know for sure is he must be getting some serious neck dive.

He apparently just got the guitar earlier that day.
