The 24 Club
 
In 1995 the band released Exhausted as a US 12 inch vinyl promo

And there's a fight still really over whether that came before or after the single sided TIAC UK 7 inch vinyl promo
https://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters...elease/1722687

Then there was the US TIAC CD Single promo which was almost certainly around many days before June 19th 1995

And there's the known UK Parlophone early internal master promo cassette with just TIAC & Exhausted - like they weren't even quite sure themselves just what the first single was going to be.

So that argument - over which was first (if you cared to have it) is still hard to win by anyone.

But when it comes to Foo T-Shirts it doesn't take long for collectors to know for sure that THIS is the first ever Foo Fighters T-Shirt... (keep it clean! lol)

Only sometimes what you know to be true for well over a decade turns out to be wrong.

And though I've known this for some time now, I can finally share it. Both designed by Tim Gabor, from a run of 24, never seen before let alone sold, I get to sit this beside TR's Rough Mixes cassette.

There's a bit more story to it, and I'm not sharing color images, but a couple of redacted emails from the man himself will be enough for now.

We'd discussed it before, he was just "blocking out" the provenance and the fact it was being sold to me. The "Print" references are another story that may be shareable in the future, but not now.

I'm probably not the only one that will now feel differently about the significance of that US TIAC promo CD with the ODD different image lol

Nice. It's like the Foo version of QI. I shall deem it FooI.
