THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH:
"This session was the only time I shot them other them in performance. It was for the cover of their ‘End of the Century’ album, produced by Phil Spector. Joey was a big fan of Phil’s in spite of their punk roots. Their manager, Danny Fields, warned me that they didn’t have much patience with photographers and if they didn’t like how the session was going, they’d walk out. And I would only get one hour of their time! I was nevertheless excited about the shoot, but they were not very communicative. I showed them polaroids as the session progressed, for which they didn’t express any particular enthusiasm. Mostly I shot on a red background, and somehow one of these frames ended up on the cover. I also shot on a black plastic background onto which I reflected ‘arty’ colour effects. None of these photos have ever been released, until now." Mick Rock
