Default Concrete And Gold - Original Version

"In the end we all come from what's come before". That's now tattooed on a dude's arm after Sonic Highways.

Way back in 1994 that same dude made this tape - even hand added the cover. It looks like this:



Said dude then later used what was on that tape and added a glittery alien killing gun.

What do you get then, if you add the two together? Well fuck me...

Concrete And Gold - 23 years ago!

Yes - that is the true real 1936 Buck Rogers XZ-38 Disintegrator pistol as used in the artwork for the first album - but not THE actual gun from that year used. It's next to the actual tape Dave made in 1994. I own both those items.

I do though know who owned the actual actual gun at the time the art was made, how it was made, by whom (both people involved), and have pictures of the correspondence, the check for payment to secure it, the returned check effectively saying "it's all good no money needed" and a picture of a guy holding the gun while in possession with another guy (in the band) in shot doing his very best X-Files impression... but the story and the pictures were shared under "no specifics to be revealed" terms.

I know that's like an area51 statement - but the truth is out there lol
