Here’s what guitarist Sylvain Sylvain has to say about the cover:
“That first album cover was because of me. Mercury had taken us to an antique shop, and we were supposed to (pose) without our makeup, like we were dolls among the antiques. We looked like we do on the back of the cover. It was okay, but it had nothing compared to what the Dolls really were. I called up all my friends in the rag business and said, “Hey, I got $900 and I need a dynamite shot.” These friends suggested (photographer) Toshi, who was doing Vogue covers. He got the crew and this guy named Shin for the hair and another guy for the makeup [credited on the record as Dave O’Grady]. That couch we were sitting on, we found that on the street and brought it up. We put the white fabric on it — I remember tacking it on. It was really a trashed couch, with a white satin cover.”
