Album Cover Mash-Ups by Christian Marclay

Unless you've spent the last decade living under a rock, you've probably heard a mash-up or two. You know, a DJ takes the music from one song and plops the vocals from a totally different song on top of it...and let's not confuse 'mash-ups' for 'sampling'. Mash-ups generally work best when the marriage is ironic. [see youtube for Rick Astley vs Nirvana].

New York based visual artist & composer Christian Marclay goes a step further, he mashes-up LP covers, creating some seriously over the top collages.
