pure evil is when flowers sing

Steven Stapleton was responsible for the cover painting. The alleged story is that it's painted directly onto an old wooden outhouse door Stephen somehow appropriated. He created the image by sanding down several layers of accumulated paint, painting the coat of arms, then sanding again. That he could achieve such a psychedelic effect from organic materials is to me a perfect compliment to the nature of the recordings it graced. Something of a litmus test for the psyche, the cover imagery itself is multilayered in such a way that if you interpret the sheild as a broad, flat nose and the curling banners as lips and mouth, you realise that the entire coat of arms is also quite deliberately the head of a lion! —John G. Dennett
