Badmeaningood – Peanut Butter Wolf is the third compilation release under the Badmeaningood title. It is a 2xLP from 2003. The tracklist is as follows:
For anyone noticing that the artist named on the title is often not featured on the track listing, they are always appear on the “Intro” track, if not on the records themselves.
This 2003 Wall of Sound Compilation 3xLP features some familiar artists from other Banksy covers (Blak Twang, Röyksopp) , but this record cover is unique of one special reason. The perpetually reclusive artist known as Banksy is actually pictured. He is credited as the man on the far right side of the front cover.
Released in October 2003, Good Song was the third and final single released from the LP Think Tank. One thing I should note is that if you look carefully at the upper left corner of the front cover, you will see a tiny notch. This appears in all three 7″ vinyl singles, and is not an indication of damage.
The second single released from the Think Tank LP, the Crazy Beat vinyl single offered a different cover from its CD single version. The CD image was actually tagged to a building before being notable painted over against the building owner’s wishes.
Here are the front and back of the CD version:
Out of Time was one of three 7″ singles to come from the Think Tank LP, along with Crazy Beat, and Good Song. The degree of collaboration, having Banksy do all the LP cover imagery, as well as the promo CD and all three 7″ picture sleeves was unprecedented, and never repeated.
This four track EP was also hand stamped with the Petrolhead image, but this time without the red ring. The track listing for this EP is as follows:
Blur’s Think Tank record was also available as a promo CD featuring a hand stamped version of Banksy’s Petrolhead image. There was great individuality to the placement and orientation of these stampings, as can be seen below.
As well as a very rare alternative stamp, that I have never personally seen:
Blur is an English rock band that achieved great success in the 1990s. Think Tank, released on the Parlophone label in 2oo3, reached number 1 on the UK charts, and was the band’s highest ranking album in the United States, reaching number 56. This record was re-released in 2012. The easiest way to tell the difference between the original and the reissue is the numbers listed on the blur sticker and the bar code on the back. Here are the images from the original:
