Este fue el último single publicado por los Prime Movers, tras una serie de singles,12" y LPs como: Crystalline, The Sins Of The Fourfathers, Earth Church, Stroboscope y Arc. La cara A es de Fay Hallam y la B para Graham Day por aquel tiempo marido y mujer, así que compartiendo single. Cuando compré este single pensaba encontrar bastante de Prisoners, pero en una primera escucha me decepcionó un poco (sonido tirando a Hard nosequé), bien es cierto que con el tiempo y pasando de prejuicios he llegado a apreciar lo publicado por Prime Movers (The Sins... en especial). Todos conocemos las andanzas del amigo Graham Day: Solarflares, Buff Medways, Thee Mighty Caesars, Galoers.... pero los que más me llaman la atención son "Planet" y "Gift Horses", puede que por la dificultad de encontrar algo de ellos.

The Prime Movers are from Chatham, Kent, England and they formed in 1988, with Graham Day (Guitar/Vocals), Allan Crockford (Bass), Wolf Howard (Drums) and joining soon after Fay Hallam (Keyboards/Vocals). Their exciting '60s garage sound was very similar to that of The Prisoners. In 1989 they released their first EP "Crystalline" in 1989. Shortly followed by their first album "Sins Of The Fourfathers". They played many gigs in promoting their new material and were well attended by old and new fans. In 1991 they released the LP "Earth Church". Half the tracks on this album were written and sang by Graham and the remaining by Fay, who had equally remarkable lyrics. This was a thriving, more creative album, with attractive melodic songs. The whole album was a stormer. In 1992 after many more gigs, they released their second EP "Stroboscope", followed by their third and final album "Arc". Success was not on the horizon and in 1993 the single "We Live to Shine" was released on Little Teddy and later The Prime Movers split up. The Prime Movers were equally as good as The Prisoners, and like The Prisoners never got the success they ought to have. (Little Teddy Records)
