“Spaceman, I always wanted you to go into space, man.”

Babylon Zoo were a British rock band of the mid-1990s from Wolverhampton, England, fronted by Jas Mann. They were best known for the song Spaceman which on its release on January 21, 1996, went straight to Number 1 on the UK singles chart selling 418,000 copies in the first week of release, a record at the time.

“”Spaceman”” is a song by British singer-songwriter Jas Mann, of Babylon Zoo. Known for its heavily distorted guitars and metallic, robotic-sounding vocals, it went straight to Number 1 on the UK singles chart on 21 January 1996, selling 418,000 copies in the first week of release. At the time it was the fastest selling single by a debut artist in the UK.

Promotional copies of “”Spaceman”” had been distributed, and the Arthur Baker remix was chosen to tie in with the release on 1 December 1995 of a new Levi’s jeans TV advert titled “”Planet”” which was directed by Vaughan Arnell and Anthea Benton. The advertisement concentrated on the sped-up vocal section at the beginning and end of the song, which was the product of an Arthur Baker remix. The single went straight to Number 1 on the UK singles chart on 21 January 1996, selling 418,000 copies in the first week of release, at the time being the fastest selling single by a debut artist in the UK. The single remained at number 1 in the UK for 5 weeks, selling 893,000 copies in this period. The single also went to Number 1 in the single charts in twenty-three countries.”
