Manic Street Preachers - Journal For Plague Lovers Album Cover BANNED

The cover for “Journal For Plague Lovers” (pictured) depicts a girl seemingly with a bloody and battered face and has been painted by acclaimed artist Jenny Saville.

Sainsburys, Tesco, Asda and Morrisons have all refused to stock it with the original image, as Nicola Williamson, music buyer for Sainsbury’s explained: “We felt that some customers might consider this particular album cover to be inappropriate if it were prominently displayed on the shelf. “
