The single from newcomer Jas Mann was bought before it was sold, tapped for a Levi’s commercial in Britain. Watching this 1995 version of the future is about as ridiculous as a “home of tomorrow” from the World’s Fair:
Propelled by that alien minx in her mom jeans, “Spaceman” rocketed to #1 on the UK singles chart — and followed suit in 23 other countries.
The ad is decieving, as it only borrows from the song’s intro. The actual track is considerably more glammed out:
Subsequent album The Boy With The X-Ray Eyes went platinum in the UK, but sadly “Spaceman” was a one-hit wonder. Follow up King Kong Groover failed to chart. With a title like that, it’s hard to believe.
Still, I always wanted to go into space, man. Even if it is super gay.
