Purple parallelogram I got in Amsterdam (made me dream a dream I didn't understand)

I've had this one in my queue for months now, and heartily singing it out the other day in my car made me finally decide to post it up. This is a rockin' little pop song, written by Noel Gallagher from Oasis and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads. According to Dando, speaking around the time of the release of Definitely Maybe: "We met about a month ago and hit it off, then last night we collided in Paris. We'd both been playing the Lowlands festival in Holland this weekend and we wrote a song together called 'Purple Parallelogram.'"

Purple Parallelogram - The Lemonheads/Evan Dando

A friend once bet me a shiny nickel that no version existed of Noel Gallagher singing this:

Purple Parallelogram - Noel Gallagher

It does, it does. It's rough, but fun.

Makes us all want sing heartily about psychedelic drug excursions (but not in front of the kids).

Interesting art. Is it the cover art for the CD (or EP), or are you the artist?

If the latter, do you have more art available online for viewing, if not sell?

Cool! I heard the stories of the song when Evan Dando went mental and became Oasis' groupie back in 1995. I didn't realise that versions of the song existed.

Many Thanks!
