I almost forgot how bad the state-of-the-art visual effects on Top Of The Pops in the 80s could be. Every song seemed to end with the band's name scrolling down the screen and then the whole picture spinning round and disappearing up it own arse. Cringeworthy at best.

No doubting that Windpower is a classic but you have to wonder what the significance of the number 26 is here. Hopefully a minimal house remix is not on the cards for impending release...sigh.

Yeah, those four blocks are appaulling...

Very catchy tune, though I heard this on Monday and have not been able to get it out of my head since.

However on closer inspection there really is not song there whatsoever, just a few catchy bits expertly produced - smoke and mirrors (particularly smoke!)

I enjoyed it though and it is a great track - hope we arnet getting a 08 remix....
