Marc Almond and Dave Ball stand, both together and apart, in front of a ice blue wall covered in an odd assortment of kitchen implements, for the sleeve of the Bedsitter single. The set was notable for falling apart at the wrong moment. Pots and pans dropped from the wall seemingly whenever I was about to take a shot. That added a hesitancy to their poses and an element of uncertainty to the  picture. This photograph was taken on the 17th September 1981 in a basement studio in Mount Pleasant.
