Here's something that bothered me for such a long time...

What's the origin of the 'Exit Planet Dust' album cover? This picture with the guy and the girl walking down the road with a guitar. I'd really like to see the original picture.

Where was this picture taken from?  :-\
Where does it come from?

So let your body rock...

I wanted to ask the same question a week ago!!! But then i went "meh, fuck it"  >:D 8)
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

I know I read somewhere it's a stock photo they bought. There are more pictures of this in the same setting...

You can read about this album art photo on the Exit Planet Dust Wikipedia page, ..  according to Ed in a 1995 interview he said it was chosen from a 1970's fashion shoot reject box,, .. more info on the wiki page, .. hmmm,  i wonder what the couple in the photo are doing now  . .  i presume they know they're quite famous.

Never for money, always for love.
