People march with portraits of Bob Hope and Chairman Mao. Not pictured: McCafferty's Bib


  • The illustration of congregated masses holding up signs of Bob Hope and waving McCafferty's Bib seems to mark the band's continued interest in a performance art piece by Öyvind Fahlström. It also influenced TMBG's iconographic use of William Allen White. As Linnell explains in a 2015 interview with Bearded Magazine, the performance "involved people marching down the street with giant portraits of Chairman Mao and Bob Hope." Footage can be found online.[1]
