Guitarist Defends Scissor Sisters' Album Artwork


Guitarist Defends Scissor Sisters' Album Artwork
Del Marquis believes the image of a man's clenched bottom can be interpreted into either a homophobia or an art.


Scissor Sisters star Del Marquis has defended the band's controversial new record sleeve art, insisting it is a "really classic-looking album cover". The group's latest disc, "Night Work", has sparked controversy after the cover shot was revealed as a provocative close-up of a man's clenched bottom - but guitarist Del Marquis is proud of the artwork.

He tells Digital Spy, "I knew that it would invoke different responses from different people. We're a love/hate band - people seem to either vehemently despise us or love us with all their hearts. The way someone reacts to it will tell you a lot about that person."

"People could view it with reactionary homophobia, or they could view it as camp, or high art, or something beautiful. It reminds me of the back of (The Rolling Stones album) Sticky Fingers actually - it's a really classic-looking album cover."

And the star is thrilled to see the image enlarged for the album's advertising campaign: "The cover's been blown up on billboards all over town and it's really exciting for me to be driving through religiously conservative neighbourhoods and seeing this giant gorgeous clenched man's a**!"
