“Anyway, we [Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters and me] did a photo shoot together [with Miki Berenyi of Lush for Melody Maker, commemorating 4AD’s 13 year anniversary] and he was pointing at these old posters that were on a wall behind us. They were old Muses posters and stuff and he was like, “Is that you down in the corner?” I was like, “Yeah,” and he goes, “Whoa! Oh, I knew that was you. I can tell.” I was like, “Well, it’s ME that’s probably why (laughs).” So I was like, “Yeah,” and he was like, “So when did you get that taken?” and I go, “Uh, I don’t know, back in like ‘87 or something like that.” It was an old picture. And he’s like, “Why are they using it for this?” and I’m like, “What are you talking about?” And i realized he thought that that was me (she points to the nude woman on the cover of the 13 Year Itch CD). He thought the whole time (laughs) that I was the naked lady on all the posters everywhere. I was like, “Oh, yeah! Like Vaughan Oliver can get me to take my clothes off (laugh).”
