Many bands use cliche shots - I guess there are only so many styles.
Bands can't have have fake photos - they reveal if there is musical integrity or not.
It is that of the late 70's British band, Joy Division.
They chose their name from the back story to the novel, House of Dolls.
I have read it and let me tell you it is not for the faint hearted.
Their song 'No Love Lost' contains an edited passage from the novel.
Black & White vs. Colour
I don't think powerful band images need to be black & white.
This is one of the best shots of Muse & it is full of bright colours.
It is powerful, but in a completely different way.
