"It's a drawing on the back of a sketch from an artist
called Johnathan Gent. He's a friend of Raife's," explains
Andrew. "He lives and works in Paris so we are very grateful
for him donating it. It's of Stanley Kubrick. I found it on
the back, he must have been sharpening his pencil or whatever
and this is what he did but if you look close enough you can
make out a cat." Andrew laugh gently. "What we are
trying to do," he continues, "this is a heavy record
but we wanted to also reflect the softer side to what we do.
So the sleeve work was also
important. It shows about what I mentioned before about leaving
a body of work that was from a person who has lust for finishing
things, a great eye for detail, a great quality control and
these are things that anybody can aspire to."
Like Kubrick left behind the film A.I. and Speilberg finished
it off for him?
"Exactly and I think you've just wrapped up the interview."
