This single is the result of a school project at Otto Hahn comprehensive in the Hamburg region of Germany. A group of 16-year-olds wrote the music and lyrics about a charming alien (Fred from Jupiter) who visits Earth but eventually has to leave due to making too many men jealous. The endearingly simplistic drum machines and synth lines of the A-side are somewhat let down by the childish vocals and, for that reason, it's a huge shame an instrumental mix is not included. "Auch Die Heimat Ist Nicht Mehr Schön" on the B-side, however, is a nice minimal and abstract couple of minutes led by a pulsating bassline and four-to-the-floor kick. It comes highly recommended for fans of weird 45s.
