Cutout Bin: Tom Wilson's All American Boy

Tom Wilson, All American Boy (Aboveground Records, 1982)

This album cover is like Wilson's Flickr page. He photographs the minutiae of his daily life in the vain hope someone will be interested. Which picture will get the most views? Tom rakishly raking leaves? Showing his wacky side with an inverted phone chat? Doing his best Borat impersonation on the push-mower? The quick mid-jog look over the shoulder, just to make sure you're looking at his ass?


I sure hope Wilson accepts me as a Contact. Better yet, a Friend. If his public pics are this good, who knows what has in his private friends-only account!

Where are They Now?
