Monday Mural

 I'm linking up at Monday Mural 

May 2021 - Toronto ON

My husband is so well-trained!! He took these photos on a walk along the lake on his own.

Obviously there is a theme going here. It is like an art gallery of 70s and 80s classic album covers spoofed. Some of the work is very much like the original album covers, I've only included a couple as reference, feel free to look up the others. 
Provide any others you recognize in your comments.
I also noted that all the billboards say cancelled and sold out, I wonder if that is a reference to the global pandemic cancellations of live performances?

I had to zoom in on some of them to find an artist name. Spekchella is the only name I could find.

Flaming Sticks Experience Are You Extinguished = Jimi Hendrix Experience album The Ultimate Experience

The Blast Parkdale Calling = The Clash London Calling

Gray Day Canadian Idiot = Green Day American Idiot

Bob Blaze and the Inhalers = Bob Marley and the Wailers
Kiss Hotter Than Hell
The Sparklers = The Specials
Killing Smoke = Killing Joke

Firewood Sac Roaring = Fleetwood Mac Rumors
David Inferno Aladdin Inflame = David Bowie album Aladdin Sane 
Violet Flames = Violent Femmes

Incendy Pop = Iggy Pop
Hush Fire by Night = Rush Fly by Night


  1. ...this sure is a clever idea!

  2. Great rendition of musicians canceled but using slightly different names...and very similar images. It speaks to all the musical performances canceled in the last 14 months...and how suddenly those who put them together were family has a creative member who has had to invent another career.

  3. Very interesting billboards for musical concerts. I see your husband can also spot murals, mine is learning to do it...
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Jackie.

  4. Here is my youtube video of my husband feeding a Willie Wagtail. They are such cute birds always "dancing", and they eat bugs.

  5. Toronto sure has much more art than I remember from my young years of hanging out there. Very nice

  6. These were incredible, Jackie. What I loved was I immediately knew some of these bands and the exact albums, too. Your husband did a very good job of spotting these.

  7. "Getting it" takes some concentration here. Maybe I'm too sleepy. Still fun.

    best... mae at
