The first single from APOLLO 18, "The Statue Got Me High", will be
released in the U.S. on February 24th (It was released in the UK
on February 3rd) The "Statue" video, directed by longtime TMBG
associate Adam Bernstein, will most likely premiere on MTV's 120
Minutes on either February 16th or 23rd. (Giants fans wishing to
see this video more often are encouraged to call 1-800-DIAL MTV
and request it!)

In the US the "Statue" single will be released only as a cassette
single (the b side is the album version of "She's Actual Size").
In the UK, it will also be released on 7" & 12" vinyl and as a 5"
CD single (in addition to "She's Actual Size", the 12" & CD
contain 2 historic non-album b sides taken from TMBG's
semi-legendary cassette-only self-released "pre-first album" from
1985, "I'm Def" & "Which Describes How You're Feeling" (a newly
recorded version of the latter song appears on APOLLO 18).

Subject: TMBG Info Bulletin CORRECTION

*****************************************************************
TMBG Online Information Bulletin 1.0.1 / February 1992
*****************************************************************

CORRECTION: Contrary to what was reported in Info Bulletin 1.0 the
US cassette single of "The Statue Got Me High" will include the
two tracks from the Giants' 1985 cassette-only self-released album,
"I'm Def" and "Which Describes How You're Feeling", which are on
the UK 12" and CD "Statue" singles. It will not include the album
version of "She's Actual Size".

APOLOGIA: If anyone went out and shelled out too much money for
one of the import singles thinking that those 2 tracks would be
unavailable in the US, we're very sorry. The decision to include
them was made at the last minute while John & John were in the UK
and we didn't learn about it here until this morning when UPS
brought a box of the US cassette singles to our door.

*****************************************************************
DISCLAIMER: Nothing is true. Everything is permissible.
*****************************************************************


BY THE WAY: The US cassette single should be in stores in about a week
(around the 24th of February).
