So there we were, minding our own business, watching the Aliens commentary (as you do), when the Marines in the cast started discussing Al Matthews aka Sgt. Apone. I forget what it was exactly that was said, but I was inspired to look him up on Wikipedia (which is always right) and learned something new: before he loved the Colonial Marine Corps, he had landed a hit single in 1975 with “Fool,” which reached #16 on the UK Singles Chart.
The path then was clear: find the song. And the Internet did not let me down. Here he is live from Top of the Pops…

Not bad at all. And he is working that scarf. And of course, I had to find the cover art for the single.
Wait. “Don’t Run From My Love”? There’s a B-side? Well, we must have it.
And lest anyone forget who you’re dealing with: here’s something else that appeared on the Aliens Blu-Ray.
Fan-tastic. Thanks, Internets! And if you don’t have the , well, you need it. It’s pretty great.
