Cool couples: Maureen Hindley and David Smith
Do you know the famous artwork of Sonic Youth’s album Goo, which originally hit stores on June 26, 1990?
I recently discovered that it is inspired by a true picture, this one:
These two are Maureen Hindley (sister of Moors murderer Myra Hindley) and her then husband, David Smith. The photograph was apparently taken in the mid-1960s when Maureen Hindley and Smith, trial witnesses, were in their car. You may have seen the film based upon Myra Hindley’s life in which actress Samantha Morton played the villainess in question. Or, you may also be familiar with The Smiths’ song, “Suffer Little Children,” about the Moors murders themselves.
Creepy choice apart, how cool are they?
And this is the back of the album.
