Secret 7

 

 

Vinyl cover design for Secret 7.

 Song: Born Slippy Nuxx by Underworld

 

The band said in an interview with the Guardian that the song is intended to sound like an alcoholic's internal dialogue, and the lyrics were a cry for help from frontman Karl Hyde who was an alcoholic at the time.

 

With this in mind I photographed the top of a beer bottle and repeated it within itself to symbolise the actions of being an alcoholic. I treated the rim of the bottle to several rounds of sandpaper to make it look used and to emphasize the struggle of being an alcoholic.
