    If you'd like something not quite as good as vinyl but a damn sight better than a download, then the 'Venus & Mars' CD is for you.

    One of a limited run of just five hundred copies, 'Venus & Mars' comes in a simple 7"-style cardboard sleeve, with original imagery from SAF and additional artwork from Steve Roberts of SRL Designs. It also handily fits into the glove compartment of your car, where you'll forget about it until you eventually need to have a bit of a clean-out before the MOT.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Venus & Mars EP via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Do you remember the time
It was after dark
We climbed over the gates
And into the park
We lay on the grass
And we looked at the stars
You said you were from Venus
And I was from Mars
And I laughed...

It seems so long ago
Since you were mine
So long ago
A different time
And I hope that you still think of me
Yes I hope that you still think of me
Once in a while

And then it started to rain
As we ran through the street
To the doorway of that record shop
Where we used to meet
You looked up at me
With that little smile
Cos you knew
That I'd wanted you for a while
Oh that beautiful smile...

It seems so long ago
Since you were mine
So long ago
A different time
And I hope that you still think of me
Yes I hope that you still think of me
Once in a while

And I know
I'm just twenty-four hours from you...
