Quattro brani scoppiettanti trattenuti a stento in un mini cd - di cui esiste anche la versione in vinile - raccontano di un esuberante incontro recente tra Andy Partridge e Robyn Hitchcock avvenuto nel più lusinghiero dei modi, con favorevole congiunzione astrale e senza recar danno ad alcun dinosauro: Planet England. Testimonia il primo: "Rather than these two big planets and their similar odd gravities repulsing each other, as might be anticipated. I can cheerfully tell you that it's been one rather beautiful crashing creative event. that I want to repeat. Feels like being in a group again." E confessa l'altro: "Andy and I are the same age and suffer from the same record collection, especially the B’s: Barrett, Beatles, Beefheart. He’s a Scorpio and I’m Pisces, so we’re the same astrological team as Richard Burton and Liz Taylor, except neither of us is Welsh, sadly."
