The EP cover features the three brothers identically dressed in white shirts with dark ties, dark trousers, black 'winkle-picker' shoes and tartan waistcoats. The waistcoats are augmented by 'BG' lettering on the left side, which would become a trademark of their television appearances over the next two years.[3]
