It's me, Carol

The woman on the cover of the 1963 album Organ Moods was possibly used as a reference by Clowes for the cover of the Misfit Lit exhibition catalogue (1991). It’s a generic pose, with some differences, so I wouldn’t say it’s a 100% certainty but when I saw the record my mind immediately felt like I’d seen it in Clowes’ work somewhere before.

I thought I’d made a new discovery with this, I was very pleased with myself, but with a little more searching I found people had already made the connection three years earlier, with some discussion coming up after cartoonist Jim Blanchard posted the cover on Flickr:

The Kuba Komet.   This is the Kuba Komet from Germany.   The KUBA Corporation manufactured the Komet from 1957 to 1962 in Wolfenbuttel, West Germany. These were kind of an early version of the entertainment center, as there were 8 speakers embedded in this along with a record player, a radio, and a TV tuner in the  bottom cabinet. For an extra charge you could also get a early version of a type of tape recorder and a Remote control with UHF tuner.  Another cool feature of these sets was the ability to swivel the top as you can see in the above picture. Komets were not small by any means. The set stands approx. 5′ 7″ tall, it’s over 7′ wide and weighs about 300 pounds. The cost then was approximately $700 – $1,250.00 US.
