Logo #199: Mazzy Star

Designed by the band themselves for the cover of their 1996 LP "Among My Swan." Remember Mazzy Star? That the "Fade Into You" video has been up on YouTube for the past year with almost half a million views means that someone remembers Mazzy Star. And then you try to think of the other big hit they had and you can't even do it. Fount of all knowledge Wikipedia says, "This song was also part of the "Starship Troopers" soundtrack, playing as the scene faded while Johnny Rico fought with Xander over Carmen Ibanez on Star Station Tereshkova." What a legacy! This is singer Hope Sandoval now. This is guitarist David Roback twenty years ago.
