"I have been quarry for so many years. And people have taken so many repeated pot-shots at me. So yes, I feel heavily bruised. But this time around I feel that the album represents something which is actually deeper than mere revenge and manages to rise above settling all those old scores. I do feel as if I have been been somewhat victimised. Which really isn't amusing."
"In the US the Walmart outlet will not accept You are the Quarry because I am holding a gun on the cover shot. Since Walmart surprisingly account for an enormous percentage of sales, a cut-down version of the CD photograph is pressed where only my bewildered face is shown, which isn't attractive in the least. Although this pressing is designed for Walmart only, it somehow seeps into the entire market and still survives today as the iTunes official artwork for You are the Quarry. Sigh times five thousand.
