Mark came to me with a photo of his record collection, a Lene Lovich record with a diagram of a flexing hand on it and a title: ‘Underworld Connection’. The record image ended up on the back (far smaller than I wanted), I think the hand ended up on some other release and the title produced a murky image of a view through a hole in a fence (I think). Not sure what was going on here but Mark wanted something dark and ambiguous which certainly fitted the music (a very abstract lost classic in my opinion and unlike most of his other music save for a handful of early obscurities). I’ve included a scan of my original design for the back and front except I only have it in black and white, notice a part of one of Vadim’s promo sleeves in the background on the front cover (see Swollen Members entry for more).
