Rock band James have spent a fortune on new photographic techniques for the cover of their new album Pleased To Meet You.
All the members of the band were photographed and then a digital process was used to blend together all their features to give the image that they used as the album cover.
The lads in the office recognised the face immediately – it’s our crime reporter Simon Walton.
How Simon became the bloke on the album cover is not clear but we certainly know James could have saved a fortune by simply using this picture of young Walton. The effect would have been the same.
If anyone has bought the new James album and would like Simon to autograph the cover they should give him a ring.
