Julian Cope, wearing full biker leathers, stands in the middle of Tamworth scrap yard, on the edge of the town he grew up in. The album cover pose had arms
outstretched, head to one side, as if being crucified. Here, Julian stands gazing
across the scene. The slightly clenched leather gloved hands and the warm glow of the furnace, let alone the snow covered stacks of cars that surround him, hint at the coldness of the night. It was freezing. One of the coldest nights of the year. It took many hours to light the entire space with heavy duty parcan lights running from a generator truck, just out of sight.
