Joe Boyd - legendary returning officer and foreign envoy - cited Tomorrow's appearance at the UFO Club as being a singular defining moment in his commentary on the fractured 1960s, "White Bicycles".
In a rudimentary concession to proportional representation, perhaps, it was observed that Fairie defector, John Charles Alder duly kicked up a hallucinogenic storm. Never much an aspiring part of The In-Crowd, Alder subsequently dallied briefly with Bleachers stalwarts The Pretty Things before establishing a pact of sorts with some Deviants and one Steve Peregrin Took.
The result, "Think Pink", owes more than a little to the perverted spin Mick Farren exulted in playing a hand in as elected engineer and producer. A joint collaboration with Took - on which the latter escaped the tyranny of über fuhrer, Bolan - "Three Little Piggies" is my own all too transparent attempt to collude with The Saucer People in flipping the bird in the direction of our nation's recent flaccid election.
