We met on a rocket ship on a special mission to mars
You joked about catching moonbeams and sending them home in a jar
In a silver heat resistant boiler suit you stole my heart
Now I stargaze into space wondering where you are.

This little rock we’re living on could vanish without trace
You said you had cosmic work to do out in hyperspace
And that it could be up to you to save the human race
Zooming round quicker than light and sound in a supersonic carapace

Down to earth on the interstate feeling some consternation
A love triangle’s not my idea of a beautiful constellation
Star crossed this woman’s scorned there’ll be no hesitation
Got my gun and a diaper on speeding to a new destination

Electro-pop collaboration between poet Helên Thomas & electronic musician Owen J based in Manchester UK.

Others have likened our sound to bands such as Kraftwerk, Ladytron, Chris & Cosey, Severed Heads, Soft Cell, Human League & Vince Clarke.
Although we have performed at Ste McCabe’s 'Pussywhipped' in Manchester, we consider ourselves to be a studio band & do not have any plans to perform live.
