Dave Haslam Says –
Martin X (one of the founders of ‘City Fun’) was manager of the Distractions. Bob Dickinson writes this about this front cover in his book ‘Imprinting the Sticks’; “The front cover...featured a drawing of Pip Nicholls, bass player of the Distractions...Over her blank face was placed a question mark – a reference to Pip’s androgynous appearance (short hair, men’s clothes), and the entire band’s attitude to sexuality and sex.”
