The prolific multi-instrumentalist, Nurse With Wound and Current 93 collaborator and vinyl art devotee picks his top 13 LP covers, tipping his hat to Coil, Cabaret Voltaire and a quintet of dancing banjos among others


Roxy Music - Country Life
Not a great album at all, but what a cover. It's very Roxy, very lip gloss and slick. The models were Constanze Karoli (the cousin of Can's Michael Karoli) and Eveline Grunwald (who was Michael Karoli's girlfriend). Silken-tongued Bryan 'Let's Stick Together' Ferry persuaded them to do the photoshoot; I bet they wouldn't have done it for me. Ever seen the Canadian issue? Don't bother searching it out, it's just an image of the trees.
