Daft Punk - Random Access Memories (Columbia, 2013)

Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
Ça m'emmerde. So fuck it, sans pardon!



Notes
  1. "Ça m'emmerde": A colloquial French expression meaning "it annoys me" or "it bores me." Or, a bit more literally, "it puts me in shit." 
  2. "Sans pardon": Without forgiveness.
  3. A monolingual alternative: France's masked men crap out. So dim!

Patti Smith Group - Easter
Pert guitarist, sham poet.

  1. Alternative anagram: Pah. Utter egoist's armpit! 
  2. Another anagram, offered as a consolation prize for her dozens of fans: Stamp her "guitarist-poet."

Ringo Starr - Stop and Smell the Roses (RCA, 1981)

Ringo Starr - Stop and Smell the Roses
The LP's grim stat: No sales, nor orders.



Notes
  1. "No sales." Although it may not be numerically exact, this claim conveys an essential truth: "On 31 December, the HMV store in London announces that despite the busy Christmas period, only 30 copies of the album had been sold with the store....Nonplussed, RCA dropped Starr in 1982. For the first time in his career, Starr was out of a recording contract – and this time, no major UK or US company would be willing to sign him."
