Umphrey McGee – The Bottom Half (2007) 'This design was first devised for Jane's Addiction who rejected the rough in favour of something else (they clearly don't know their onions). The idea was about female sexual allure and sexual contrariness, and came from Alice in Wonderland via Toulouse Lautrec, French can can, red/black striped corsets, Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge or Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.' 2007

Alan Parsons – Try Anything Once (1993) 'The title suggested something a touch reckless, perhaps, or at least a departure from normal behaviour. We joined this thought with the image of a bungie jump from a high bridge on television – wondering what on earth people would do for a thrill.'

Storm Thorgerson (1944-2013) Biffy Clyro's fourth studio album, Puzzle (2007)

Storm Thorgerson for Biffy Clyro's Puzzle album - Puzzle is the album that I most relate to. It deals with grief, which makes many of the songs and their lyrics so important to me.
