Quirky, continental synth pop from Germany from 1981.
Background from Discogs follower tobeheard ;
This single is the result of a school project at Otto Hahn comprehensive in the Hamburg region of Germany. A group of 16-year-olds wrote the music and lyrics about a charming alien (Fred from Jupiter) who visits Earth but eventually has to leave due to making too many men jealous. “Auch Die Heimat Ist Nicht Mehr Schön” on the B-side, however, is a nice minimal and abstract couple of minutes led by a pulsating bassline and four-to-the-floor kick. It comes highly recommended for fans of weird 45s.”
Silly vocals and for fans of the UK’s Flying Lizards. Nice bass synthline and some added space noises.
The B-side is frantic with a “played live ” bass synth and some weird sounds, mad clown cackling and other spooky effects. Weird!
