“ jekyll & hyde [...] are the psychedelic spirit of EelST. They translate our ideas into graphic art, and in some cases they come up with the idea themselves.
For our album cover we wanted something that drew attention to the fact that we used an orchestra. They suggested all sorts of things: musical instruments made of ham, a crazy conductor waving his arms at musicians drawn on the wall. Then, almost joking, they showed us this cutesy image and we fell for it. The EelST have always felt like kittens; all we could do was say yes, no doubts.”
