43 years ago, the album with no name was released to the world by LED ZEPPELIN

In 1970, Led Zeppelin had received varied and lukewarm reception of their latest album, Led Zeppelin III. So when they went into the studio to record their next effort, Jimmy Page decided to leave the record untitled, with only four symbols representing the four band members. “We decided that on the fourth album, we would deliberately play down the group name, and there wouldn’t be any information whatsoever on the outer jacket”, Page explained.

Video Premiere: PROBING DIGIT get dirty in newest music video

Comedy can be found in many forms across a wide variety of mediums. Without comedy, the world would be a bland place, one devoid of gut-busting laughter, or heated debates against the outrage from satire. The raw, visceral scenes of the band members playing instruments caked in mud look great in high definition, and the constant focus on the band makes for a fun, “live” feel to the whole shoot.

About

Jeff Ayers

I started reading at a very young age with my parents. My father read the comic strips in the paper with me, like Spider-Man, Calvin and Hobbes, and Peanuts. Later, my love of reading blossomed into books, graphic novels and comic books. I also am a classically trained violinist, playing with the Empire State Youth Orchestra program as a child, and played electric violin with the progressive metal band Lore(1997-2003) and the experimental rock and roll band Skeletons in the Piano(2008-2014). I studied creative writing and journalism at SUNY Oswego and I am currently working on an illustrated collection of short stories with the talented fine artist Matt Mrowka. I live in Saratoga Springs, NY, where I frequent rock shows, dive bars and the best comic store around, The Comic Depot. Currently I review new comics for Comic Book Herald, graphic novels for Graphic Novel Reporter, and review concerts, albums, and interview bands for Upstate Live Music Guide.
