Re-up of this eternal and immortal song. What can I add? Except Peter Perrett seems to deny it was about hero but actually about a girl. However, the song is as incredible today as it was when it was released. A real shock during these straight punk times. But impossible to resist. And now it's forever under our skin. Catch it here.
OK, can't say that "Another Girl Another Planet" is a forgotten song, I know. But what is often forgotten is the fact that the single was released in 2 versions. The most known with "Special View" on the B-side, and one much rarer, with "As My Wife Says", another non-album track, on the rear side. Although both songs were rather secondary according to the band's standards (very high actually), it's important not to forget them. "As My Wife Says" rarely featured on compilations and has been added in the reissued version of the first album 2 years ago. Since I didn't want to chose between the 2 single versions, I post one file with the 2 B-sides on it. Blink 182 fans that would have lost their way and ended on this blog might have a try on them and they'll see that the Only Ones could play faster songs than AGAP that their heroes have butchered to my old-ass-half-deaf-ears. Note that the song was not a hit at the time of its release but was only some years later. It's now a classic and although some find it dated musically, it's my way to consider playing great music so I don't care. College rock is really a pale ersatz of what I consider rock music.
