Every element of the cover image was considered before it was shot. The location was an important factor in this. Even with today’s modern photographic techniques, Dexys didn’t want to shoot in a studio and then add whatever background they wanted in post-production.

Briefing Jake, the photographer, Kevin said; ‘we want somewhere where we don’t have to pretend, somewhere that we’d recognise. A place that has it’s own history. The album is all about real experiences and memories and bringing them to life in the present and the cover needs to have that too.’ Kev said.

It was on one of those backstreets near all the galleries and had no number on the front. ‘I’m not sure if the guys will let us shoot there,’ Jake said, ‘but I’ll ask. I like it because it's in the east end, but it’s part of that hidden east end’, he continued.
