The Pimps – F**k This Sh*t, We’re Outta Here

“Fuck This Shit, We’re Outta Here” is the last recording released by midwestern punk vets, The Pimps. Ironically, it’s also the first album they decided to release on vinyl. Vinyl and CD versions have different artwork. Much of the interior photos for each were produced by the band members with Brian Milo, professional photographer. (It should be noted that Brian also shot the internet-only cover photo for the “Dames at the Soiree” pre-album single release, shown below.) Stu Johnson (singer, songwriter) provided a photo for the alternate CD cover version that we ended up repressing with the film photo I produced for the Vinyl version. This was one of those fun projects where I got to exercise some songwriting demons as well. “I.M. Merica”, one song of many I’ve written over the last two decades, appears on this record rerecorded by the band. Illustration and design duties rounded out this package. It’s always a blast working with Stu because anything goes— and I wanted the color palette to reflect such with this release being the band’s swan song.
