This is great and I have my good friend Dr Al to thank for it because it's on a CD he pressed into my palms over a few pints of Pride in the pub last night.
I like the way it moves from a general observation about nothing being like it is in the brochures to the specific complaint that 'the future's not what they said it would be in the Sunday papers in the Seventies'
Where's my monorail?
Where's my hovercar? Where's my robot slave?
And my wife isn't Elizabeth Sladen*
Listen, any song that references 'our Liz' is certain of my full and robust support.
Some of you may know Darren from Hefner.
