Art of the Cover - Hooton Tennis Club's "Highest Point In Cliff Town" (2015)

Highest Point In Cliff Town cover art

“Few recent debuts have felt quite so enjoyable." 
...MOJO - ★★★★

“Top titles and strong hooks on this indie debut."
...Uncut Magazine

 “Best of all, the songs are as good as their titles: 1990's slacker guitar rock played with wit, charm and confidence .”
...The Sunday Times

"The hit rate is impressive: the gently psychedelic Jasper is anthemic, while suburban-recluse groover P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L P.I.E.R.R.E is agreeably perverse.”
...Q Magazine

 "Hooton Tennis Club have produced a debut that's utterly irresistible: a summer soundtrack that makes staring out of the train window significantly less mundane.”
...DIY Magazine - ★★★★ 

Some wonderful cover art here, created by J. Madden.

The inlay photograph is by Nata Moraru - a shot taken out and about in Liverpool one leafy day.

Hooton Tennis Club are Callum, Harry, James and Ryan and they declare .... we are the music makers; we come from far away. 

And, oh yeah,the music's pretty fucking good too!
