Blinker the Star, August Everywhere Album Cover, 1999

About the image
August Everywhere  is the band's third album.  Four ice sculptures by Gus, which kept melting of course, and breaking at the neck.  Very transitory and very poignant."  Shot in Death Valley, the refrigeration truck broke as they were driving to the shoot, so they had to take them out one at a time and shoot really quickly.” "The ice swan was always going to die, inexorably, inevitably, sadly melting away in the desert heat. A phoenix in reverse, turning into water in order to replenish the parched earth beneath: a noble but pathetic gesture, for it was only a drop in an ocean of dryness."  - Storm Thorgerson
