Reminded me of that.
like the greek statues of antiquity, the millennium falcon was originally polychromatic - rich in pigments from the oils and dyes of a thousand cultures across the galaxy. this photo is our best interpretation of what “the falcon” must have looked like as it rolled off the showroom floor.
years of wear and the bleaching properties of the binary stars of tatooine left us with what we’re most used to - a faded but beloved bucket of bolts that while plain to the eye, could get you past that blockade.

Paul: This photo was taken in the cupboard-under-the-stairs-turned-office at my parents’ old house (This is where they famously penned many of their early tunes!) We had just been on Top of the Pops and Chime was in the Top 40, so the Sevenoaks Chronicle wanted to interview us. We’d never done press before, hence the incredulous expression on my face. The photographer would have been saying: “Can you pretend you’re doing something?” And I’d have been thinking: “Is this what you want? Really?”
It’s in the Cairngorms near Aviemore, where we spent the weekend
Whoa that’s stunning.
