apollo 18 (1992); japanese release
i want to own this
Maybe I will buy it for you next year when you will be 18-YEAR-OLD APOLLO
(also I want it too)
Somebody make a better album cover than Apollo 18, I fucking dare you.
Ok so, my TMBG story (the unnecessarily long version of which is here) is my dad had a copy of Pink that I rocked the fuck out to when I was 5 or so, and it stuck in my head, but I refused to buy any music that wasn’t oldies/classic rock for myself until I was in high school. So here I am nine years later, at the Barnes and Noble, remembering that AWESOME and SO WEIRD album from long ago and wanting to start buying TMBG stuff, and I remember looking through the bin and I saw Apollo 18 and I was like “OH MY FUCKING GOD THIS IS THE BEST COVER I HAVE EVER SEEN I HAVE TO GET THIS ONE.” It is still my very fav (though Pink is a pretty close second).
Ok Birdhouse is my favourite video right but John is actually the best-dressed in Guitar because you’ve got the CONVERSE (the only video where he’s wearing them) AND you’ve got a stripey turtleneck aka THE ULTIMATE JOHN LINNELL SHIRT. Pretty fabulous.
TMBG on Jonathan Ross. Yes, that is Steve Nieve on keyboards.
Oh godddddddddddddddd this video. ONE OF THE ABSOLUTE SEXIEST THINGS EVER CAPTURED ON FILM. BRB dyyyyyyyyyying.
