    This was possibly the most challenging and fun song the Gs have ever covered! The immaculate 4 against 3 rhythms, the surprise half step key changes and the Devo-esque "genetic mutation" lyrical theme made it irresistible. After 2 weeks of work, the 180 G's were asking themselves: "What have we gotten ourselves into?!" After 3 more weeks it finally came together.

      Amazing version of possibly my favourite Cardiacs song (if that's actually possible :)

      Attempting the impossible is one thing but achieving it - stunning. Awesome enough that you don't have to know the originals to love what you've done with them. 5 stars out of 4.

      This is truly amazing piece of music. You have done justice to the Cardiacs.

      Hi David - I'm Mark Cawthra, and I'm here to tell you that I'm sitting with Tim right now playing him this fab version - He wants me to tell you how much he likes it, and he says he's really flattered that you would do this and do it so well. He says sorry he would write himself, but cannot so I'm doing it for him. As for me, I freaking love it too x
