This was the second album cover for Black Noise. Here was the original.
Unfortunetly, Black Noise did not chart. Success would find FM a little later in their career with the Surveillance album.
Nash the Slash was quite the interesting guy. In 1979 he took the stage with hospital bandages on this face that were dipped in phosphorous paint. It was in reference to the Three Mile Island disaster. It caught on and became his trade mark to this day.
