photo by Ed Sirrs (NME, 20 July 1991)
'I can remember at the time that I thought it was really awful. Of all the photos you could have chosen you picked one of me gurning and Alex with his shorts halfway down his arse. But, looking back on it, it's nice to see Alex with no shoes on and me very, very sweaty.
I can't remember where it was taken. It was a different world then, really. It was very new and everything was really exciting. If that was our first cover that was a very, very momentous moment for us. At the moment it was taken I was probably thinking what sidefill I could headbutt next or could I manage a double-backflip into the drums.' - Damon Albarn
