Spent many nights, long ago under the summer stars contemplating the universe with this magnificent journey of a track.

Pretty much the best. Just...the best. Period.

Prog. house from "U.F.Orb" about a crashed flying saucer, and "Above Top Secret".
Ex-PiL Jah Wobble on bass. W/ex-Gong Miquette Giraudy. Produced by ex-Gong Steve Hillage,
Dr. Alex Paterson & then second half of the Orb, Kris "Thrash" Weston.
The track actually lasts for 40 minutes and was the longest single ever released.
