This is a fantastic piece of early 80's pop... I can't remember if I came across it first on John Peel, Kid Jensen or the early evening Radio 1 Annie Nightingale show. Suspect it was Jensen - anyone studying for their 'A' levels in 1980 (no year on the sleeve or centre label) will know why I might think that if they hear it. Starts with traffic noise, then a tinkling piano leads into a John Foxx electronic drone and then a reggae beat - not un-akin to Ultravox!'s "Dangerous Rhythm", but then goes kind of 60's pop, 'Concrete and Clay' sort of thing...
No pigeon hole for it - hence it flopped completely. The B side isn't bad either!
