Uno has also worked with Buck-Tick before in a professional capacity—he provided the cover illustration for Razzle Dazzle, elements of which were also used in the designs for the tour goods on that tour.
”But the question fell on deaf ears, as the card-swappers had already gone back to their high-speed Buke-Tike-Pokemon game, and there was no snapping them out of it.
