philandering at the office: by the short heirs


























Originally, this album cover confused philandering at the office fans for the usual superchared vixen, scantily clad and situated in an almost pornographic pose (leaning over a desk ... ), does not adorn it. This change in cover, however, does not mean that the band found religion--after all, the lyrics on this album are hardly feminist.

Fans have rightly assumed this change has something to do with the recent divorce of lead singer Luken Peeple from his supermodel wife Bea Lustig. Indeed this seems so, since Bea posed for the first five album covers.

Another noteworthy fact: The use of the word "bitch" is down from last year's superbitch album count of fifteen instances per minute to one instance per minute in by the short heirs. Fans have rightly assumed this change has something to do with the recent divorce of lead singer Luken Peeple from his supermodel wife Bea Lustig.

As for the cover, an almost native American cluster of feathers and strings bursts free of a bright orange silhouette.

Not sure what this orangified energy signfies, but those strings are not hairs (nor heirs, as the pun would have it), but the glorious symbolic detail of the totem of recompilation abstraction. "Huh?" you ask. Bea Lustig was also on the sixth album cover for philandering at the office, but due to a divorce-related lawsuit, her sixth cover did not happen: lawsuit=recompilation.

The current cover belongs with the tune "she-eagle," but as the cover tune "by the short heirs" goes, "she gave you short heirs, and she has you by your short heirs, and she gave you gray hair, and she has you by the short hairs." In other words, Luken Peeple pays Bea Lustig $50,000 a month to visit his children for five days a month.

Totally confused? Here are the lyrics to "she-eagle": "she plays all the old men, she cajoles and threatens and lets her eagle fly, she plays the old women, she cajoles and threatens and lets her eagle lie, but why? she's no good for the tribe."

philandering at the office has moved through their careless twenties and all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll they could handle to their early thirties with full-on social theory in the making. Sad to say, but philosophy is so often the death of rock and roll.
