Top 10 Cockney album covers

Posted on Wednesday, 19 February by

Lana Del Boy

The clever guys over at The Poke asked Twitter users to give them some classic albums but with a reworked, cockney infusion.

It turns out Twitter is pretty good at responding to calls to action and there’s nothing you can’t do with some Photoshop skills and an overactive imagination.

Highlights range from The Killer’s debut album taking on an unlikely front woman in the form of Eastender’s Dot Cotton, and some clever punnery turning Lana Del Ray into East End’s finest independent trader.

Take a look at the below…
