Scouse power pop from Peel favourites Glass Torpedoes this time. This is one of the few singles I still have from my youth. I liked this so much I bought a Glass Torpedoes badge from Better Badges and was thrilled beyond imagination itself when a young woman working in the Post Office in Spring Gardens in Manchester commented on it positively. Validation!
The band did a Peel session in January 1980, but by the time they recorded a second single singer Barbara Donovan was gone and the band were backing up singer John Milton for Unreal the Real, a pretty rotten soft metal single by John Milton and The Glass Torpedoes.
