The third in the trilogy of EPs that would make up the album and again it came with a foldout poster as well as inner sleeve, all housed in a plastic sleeve. With this one I now had a nearly formed idea of what the album would be, including Henry Flint‘s Cosmonaut illustration for the LP cover which was previewed here for the first time. I toyed with two versions in different colours, one orange and one white, both of which appeared here but thought the white one was too conventional.
By this time I’d also dropped the ‘Stolen Moments’ title and replaced it with ‘The Search Engine’ but wanted to keep the consistency of the previous to sleeves so added the line, ‘This WAS music for…’ before the text. Here was also the first time the ‘Magpie Music’ logo turned up, something that would go on to have an extended life outside of the track it named.
