Cover blurb:
The sound of tomorrow is forged in a select few nightspots, the locations of which are known only to the hippest beat-freaks.

A red-hot venue is the Inferno in London, where the young patrons have maintained a fierce loyalty to their house band John Smith and the Common Men. Mr. Smith’s true identity is something of a mystery — some say his real name is the Honourable Aubrey Waites while others claim he’s a doctor. After scoring a number two hit with side one of this E.P. he vanished in to thin air.

Now, nearly three years on from their original hit parade triumph, John Smith and the Common Men are back. The flip of this record features two tremendous tunes that are already top of the pops with the in-crowd at the Inferno.

Some guitar groups are on the way out, but this one is way out!
