Our System


The collectors' tin boxset of English Electric contains a 7" single on blue vinyl with Our System on the A-side and exclusive track Frontline on the B-side. You can pre-order the boxset here: http://omd.firebrandstore.com/

Andy has written about the two tracks on the 7":

"Our System is crafted from a bed track of the sound of the Voyager interplanetary space probe passing through the magnetosphere of Jupiter and lyrically contrasts the perfection of the space craft leaving our solar system against the imperfection of the social system here on earth.

Frontline was inspired by the 'Arab Spring' uprising of the recent past. The rhythm track is composed of gun and artillery fire and concludes with famous quotes about revolution. When will we write a pretty little love song?"
