My girlfriend just saw this and thought they bore a striking resemblance to a certain group we're all a fan of.


Aaaaaaanyway...

The guy on the right sort of reminds me of Ben Watkins from Juno Reactor.

Haha, those were the days, when gaz'n brian were loaded with masculine energy.

Is this a cover from a record? I would love to hear what kind of sound the "laser cowboys" were producing.
But it also looks a bit like cover from an old commodore video game.

Okay. This is really bad. At least it SOUNDS a bit like an old commodore video game.
(But that cover is great! A nice find anyway.)

Reminds me of some of the other unfitting photos that occasionally graced album art...

Ah this was from the Accelerator 2CD version, right? Is it known from which year this one is? My guess considering Gaz' hairdo would be 96.

Yeah, it's the back of the booklet to the 2001 version of Accelerator. Gaz's hair suggests probably a mid-'96 photoshoot, although who knows. It's such a ridiculous picture overall, the helicopter randomly flying over, and Brian looks like a right geezer.

Ultra Warp was actually a good piece of italo disco



They even did a horrible cover of the Knight Rider theme
