| ||This A side regularly tends to appear in Joe Meek fans top ten lists and deservedly so. Unfortunately, Meek had problems getting this released since Pye objected to his original lyrics fearing they were over political and objecting to sci fi elements contained within them. So this forced a re-write (Pye were also to force a rewrite on a forthcoming Riot Squad single which ended up being the last disc Joe would release in his lifetime.)|
Despite the problems, the end result was absolutely wonderful. Meek once again throwing in as many tricks as possible and getting a brilliant emotive performance from Glenda to create an impressive spaced out piece of protest pop. Memories of "Telstar" come to mind here with the spacey sound effects which also bring the song to a memorable conclusion.
Though this was her final single, Glenda continued working with Joe since after this, she began work on an album backed by The Riot Squad. Sadly, the album was never completed and Joe's death put an end to it ever being finished.
