Info/Trivia[edit]

"What does the skull mean on "Back to Skull" and "John Henry"?


We generally prefer not to decide what things like that mean. The skull was chosen as an element on the cover art partly to offset the adorable cuteness of the kids. The effect of the whole thing seemed right, for reasons hard to put into words."
  • Artwork and layout by graphic designer Mike Mills.
