Punks that got the cream

From an interview with Brian James for Be Stiff: The Stiff Records Story
“We didn’t do it for an album cover, we just did a session with this guy called Peter Gravelle, who was married to a girl called Patti Palladin, and Patti was best mates with my girlfriend at the time, Judy Nylon. Unbeknown to me, because I work up next to the girl in the morning, and I had a discussion in the afternoon, but they concocted this little surprise for us to happen during the photo session. So out comes the whipped cream and they started getting into this stuff and chucking it, and Judy in particular because I was going out with her, she had a ball, she loved it, although she didn’t get me that much! When Barney Bubbles saw the contact sheet he said, ‘That’s the album cover, that has got to be the album cover’, and we couldn’t agree with him more. It was just too bizarre, no one had ever done that.”
