“The thing is I’ve always been in love with Agent 99. Lucky, Maxwell. That guy had a phone for a shoe! Then mum subscribed to the mid-1990’s Country Road catalogue. And then I was no longer a child. Then I saw Price on the telly. Because I wanted to be like him I started singing songs. Then I wrote some. Then I was an adult.

Watching the American Presidential election on my computer while playing the keyboards. So, I send my sweetheart this text message “pack your things, we’re moving to Mars”. She never packed her things and we’re still here. On Earth. Now that dude’s across the Pacific. And everywhere else too. Making some big calls. All I could do was write a longer text message and put it to music. That’s what a song is. To try to make it feel romantic and not so hopeless. His story reads like a Kilgore Trout novel. Science Fiction. Smut. So. I used synthesisers. The ones like in 60’s films.

Gonna Go Live On Mars isn’t gonna change the world, but he sure will. Happy birthday you whack job! Maybe the best way to stick it to him is to hold your close one, close.

This song isn’t on the album. The album will be out soon. I’ll have more to say about that sooner.

Enjoy, Alex.”
