My brother took me to a comics/record fair at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in the spring of 1992. The original plan was to pick up some missing links in my Marvel Universe collection, but i left with a cassette copy of Yerself Is Steam by Mercury Rev. It was ok. I got it on the strength of seeing the Chasing A Bee video i'd seen that week on MTV's 120 minutes, which i still think is about as far as the music video medium has gone in being just fucking smashing. I turned a corner that week.
