Hmmmm... A gristly one to start with.

Look down - the band name is in my forum sig.

Don't look down - the album cover photo was taken at Beachy Head.

Well done, Slinger. Your go...

If you know who (and in some cases what) they are then those names should give you the first and last letters of the album title, that's if this huge chunk of Dave Gibbons' cover art doesn't give the game away on its own.
Extra clue: It was a nineties debut album.
