Their biggest single, and the closest they came to the top 10, peaking at 12. At no point did it ever occur to me, or perhaps to anyone, that this indie disco delight was inspired by the Gulf War and the William Golding novel Pincher Martin, or that the beat, according to lead singer Tom Hingley, is “Stetsasonic-style…from Cross The Tracks by Maceo & The Macks”.

Cool as.
