It doesn't really make me want to listen to the band, to be honnest.
I think it may just be a composition issue...
...Then again, it may just not be album cover material.

Definitely play around with the lettering. Layed out differently, who knows what could work.

but don't take any advice from me.
Look what happens.

My friend made it up. But we are just little small town group that had a few people ask us if they could get an actual cd.
I mean the last band here did this

So we kinda got the idea from them.

It's a pretty good album, just the cover is very, well it's questionable. We are still thinking of idea's it's not number 1 on our list of priorities, so...

I'd say:

Use a better font and some kind of filter on the pic- it just looks like a camera phone pic put together in MS Paint.

I'm not a fan. Use a better font. The band name means to be larger.

It'd be best if they both had their trousers and pants right down. Or better still if they had their trousers and pants down and were pressing their genitals againts a glass coffee table top.

You do know that band name is a little shaky, right?

I raised the contrast on the photo to give it a punchline. Now it looks like they are standing in puddles. Piss Take makes a joke out of what they are doing--one that not everyone will get, and sounds self deprecating, because it rhymes with MISTAKE. Also, a take in the sense of filming (hence a photo) makes it a scene, which is also a good play on words. A demo is a rough cut, or take. A take is also a perspective, and the photo's perspective is of pissing. Pissing contest would also be a better name for the demo.

Granted, it looks 80s, but it makes it look less like an afterthought. A better photo would show what it says on your buddy's back.

Yeah, the name was a tribute to a TV show we where watching called "Mission hill" it was the first epi of the series and was on when e started the dou (or trio when it began)

Also, I love that, and I'm not sure people will really want to know what the banner on his back say's. It has gotten us in a lot of trouble.

Who drops trow to use a urinal, and even worse a disabled toilet, anyway?

I'd get some more photos or something, broaden your options.
