Babylon Zoo were so funny, they were on TV allll the time when I was a teenager. The singer, Jas Mann, wore floor-length skirts and Buffalos with spikey rubber tops. His outfits were so good, complete with a “take me to your dealer” alien head he would have on stage with him.
I’ve always lived for this Levi’s advert. I still die for it even 15 years on. Despite a seven-album contract with EMI, the band only put out one record, The Boy With the X-Ray Eyes, which included the tracks “Animal Army” and “I’m Cracking Up I Need a Pill”, alongside the Number 1 bestselling hit “Spaceman”.
Some photos, LOL:
