Monster Magnet - Forget About Life, I'm High On Dope (demo)

Day four of "Demo Week!"

Here's the demo tape from one of the original stoner rock bands, Monster Magnet. The production is poor but listenable. Monster Magnet were heavily influenced by 1970's space rock bands like Hawkwind – they even cover Hawkwind's "Brainstorm". In 1998, Monster Magnet had a hit with the song "Space Lord" from the album Powertrip, and since then lost their way trying to appeal to the mainstream.

The cover art for this demo has been quite elusive, but you appear to have found it.

Now my question is...

Which one is the cover?
The big one above or the pink one with "Freak Shop USA" on it?

Can't remember which blog I found it – it was years ago – but I believe the "Freak Shop USA" art was attached to it.
