I think Will Oldham took that cover shot, and he and David Pajo have made a couple pretty nice records together over the years since, under each of their various guises.
Did you ever hear the Pinback Summer In Abaddon
album, and its ending "AFK" song? Cool Slint reference at the end, after the breakdown, when it gets all quiet, then comes the line, "and I miss you, not in a Slint way, but I miss you," going back to the ending of "Good Morning, Captain", and the end of the Spiderland record as well, one of the best endings of all time, the whole record building towards it, the huge climax, McMahan screaming, "I miss you". Lot of stuff packed in those grooves.
