The Rolling Stones, Some Girls


With punk intent on laying waste to rock’n’roll’s idols, and disco emerging as a new force in mainstream pop, the Stones made a triumphant bid for both camps with Some Girls. Lead single Miss You was an instant dancefloor classic, and When The Whip Comes down a street-smart workout that could hold its own with the New York punks. The album’s infamous artwork also nodded to punk’s DIY aesthetic. Designed by Peter Corriston, with illustrations by Hubert Kretzschmar, the outer sleeve looked like a vintage advert for wigs, with die-cut holes revealing the faces of the Stones and a host of female celebrities peeking out from the inner sleeve. When Raquel Welch, Lucille Ball, Farrah Fawcett and Marilyn Monroe’s estate threatened legal action, their likenesses were obscured with blocks of DayGlo colouring. The result is a cut-up masterpiece in keeping with the times, proving that the Stones could hold their own among the punks.
