Here is the third of Martin Springett's ideas for artwork for the next album, 'Strange Kingdom'.
Martin asks, "Who are these little fellas? They are PITCHER CATS. There are two musical puns within the image. If you find them, you win a free Pitcher Cat poster or postcard, depending on what you have room for. What do they have to do with the song? Nothing and everything. The song is not only about the band I was in at the time, with all it's joys and absurdities, but about the creative personal space I was in at the time, and the songs and stories I felt compelled to write. Many years later, the image here came out of explorations for a Gardening Club graphic novel. Pitcher plants were in the garden, then overnight, as it were, they evolved into Pitcher Cats and other sentient plants appeared, that could natter away about this and that, so you could converse with them as you walked about The Garden. Lots of garden variety philosophers within The Garden walls."
