Website Covers of the World
The Joshua tree itself fell down in 2000, but thanks to Word Magazine’s cool online app (www.wordmagazine.co.uk/album_atlas), you can pinpoint the exact spot in Zabriskie Point, CA where U2’s iconic cover photo was taken. Do the same with hundreds more (Brian Eno’s messy English flat on Here Come the Warm Jets, the Battersea Power Station on Pink Floyd’s Animals) but best of all, submit your own and help boost the list’s CanCon beyond Rush, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. Many snaps come with tiny, brilliant anecdotes, like the Pasadena swimming pool where little Spencer Elden’s first time swimming was captured on the iconic cover of Nirvana’s Nevermind. He’s 18 now — just one of the freaky bits of trivia to be found.
