Description Front cover; image and text. The text on the front of the cover reads; 'Pop Mechanix' in red, this runs across the top of the cover from left to right. Along the bottom of the cover from left to right runs the song title 'Jumping out a Window' also in red. The image, which covers about two thirds of the cover is depicted in white, black and pink. The background is black with industrial style shapes depicted in white. These appear to reference a structure or possibly searchlights. The figures are depicted mainly in pink, with black creating shadows and white creating highlights. The figure in the foreground has his right arm raised and is pointing with his forefinger to the top right of the cover. Next to this figure, but standing slightly in the background is a man wearing sunglasses. Both people have short hair and are looking in the same direction. [AAF]
Description Back cover; image and text. The back cover has been laid out in the same way as the front cover. The band name runs across the top of the back cover and is in red. In the top right corner of the cover is the record number. The song title 'Way I Dance' runs across the bottom of the cover and is in red. Underneath the word 'Way' are the words and numbers 'C 1981 Emcee Music' in black. Underneath the word 'Dance' are the words 'Distributed by CBS Records New Zealand' in black. The image has been created using the same black background as on the front cover. There are two figures depicted in white, black and pink. These could be the same two figures that are on the front of the cover. The figure on the left is standing with his right arm held up over his face. The figure on the right is wearing sunglasses and is crouching. He also has his right arm up over his face. Both figures seem to have been blinded by a light or a blast. [AAF]
