Inky Beer Factoid: August 31

Warning: The post below contains both male and female nudity… not porn, just nudity. Some would say it is art.

John Lennon and Yoko Ono - 1971

On this day in 1968, the appearance of an album cover with a nude picture of both John Lennon & Yoko Ono is reported by Private Eye magazine.

The album, known as Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins, was viewed as obscene and sold in brown wrappers.

Interestingly, John preferred to drink a Brandy Alexander, and Yoko says, “I drink orange juice with grated ginger and garlic mixed. That just revives you.” Despite Yoko’s preference for beverages other than beer, Beck’s Brewery included Yoko Ono in their special edition bottle “unlabel” art project including great artists such as Andy Warhol, M.I.A., Kid Cudi, and many more.  This project began in 1987 and continues today!
