These are the other interesting signed TMBG Unlimited Mink Cars I’ve seen. (The “Hello!” isn’t silly but it’s CUTE.) No one knows for sure of course but people were speculating that the scribbling on the last one was Henry.
Currently SPAZZING THE FUCKING FUCK OOOOOOOOOOUT over House of Mayors. It has been FAR too long since I’ve listened to it, for some inexplicable reason, and oh my GOD. It’s, like, THE MOST JOHN LINNELL-LIKE THING JOHN LINNELL HAS EVER DONE. Obscure history? Weird instrumentation? Aging hangup? CHECK CHECK CHECK. Oh my god sometimes I just have moments when I am COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED with how PERFECT he is and my heart is so swollen up with love for him that it feels like it’s going to BURST and FUCK FUCK FUCK. JOHN. JOHNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN.
They sent these signed copies of Mink Car to everyone who subscribed to TMBG Unlimited and I think John definitely got bored with doing it cos he did silly things on a fair number of them. I hadn’t seen this one before though. Silly silly silly.

I know this pic, it was actually the “Picture of the Issue” in my zine a couple of issues back, but IT’S AMAZING so I will always take an excuse to see it again. I LOVE the idea of them out there playing their WEIRD AS FUCK songs and the passersby just being like “……………….”
