Image for Drunk Mums "haggard, aged titties” banned from iTunes

Drunk Mums "haggard, agedtitties” banned from iTunes

Drunk Mums have a message for those suits at iTunes: Stuff ‘em.

The Melbourne garage outfit were denied a feature on the iTunes home page after the cover for their self-titled debut was rejected for depicting, in the bands own words, “some haggard, aged titties”. Recalling The Voltaire Twins’ dramas with YouTube, the image was also removed by moderators from the band’s Facebook page yesterday.

In a statement sent to FL today, Drunk Mums said they refused iTunes request to provide an alternate censored cover. “Stuff those suits at iTunes,” they wrote. “This image is spot on and best represents Drunk Mums. All the people who matter will still find us buy our record.”

The band said they come up with the concept for the cover after a brainstorming session over a few beers. “We put an ad on Gumtree and within an hour got a response from a ‘stripper’ named Peaches. Hepped up on VB we jumped in the car and drove straight to her club and for a small fee – well, we got the album cover we wanted, and a quick lappie. Bonza!”

The album’s cover follows an equally trashy video for single ‘Rubbing Your Gums’, which features inflatable genitals and a gruesome ending. It premiered on FL sister site Mess+Noise last month.

Drunk Mums play a BIGSOUND showcase tomorrow (September 13) at Brisbane’s Press Club, with an album launch tour planned for September and October. Dates below. Their self-titled record is out this Friday via Gaga Digi.
