This cover, as with many in the collection, offers us much more detail than the original cover might have as the removal of Cyndi from the centre of the piece means much more of the scene is available to us. Temper has in some respects had some artistic license where these gaps are concerned, but in a testament to his talent as an artist he has maintained the integrity of each original cover by only doing what he considers to be ‘artistically necessary’.
In taking Cyndi from the foreground and having her painted onto the wall by a passing graffiti artist continues to chart Temper’s artistic livelihood whilst at the same time updating a thirty year old album with a contemporary edge. His decision to leave the discarded umbrella and shoes (which belonged to Cyndi in the original cover) in situ, all of a sudden gives the cover a new lease of life with a new story. Why were these items discarded and by whom?
