‘Kid Flip And The Golden Spacemen’ is an album that will appeal to fans of my more rock/pop/vocal work. The title is in the grand tradition of imaginary bands such as ‘Ziggy Stardust And The Spider’s From Mars,’ ‘Jet Silver And The Dolls Of Venus,’ ‘Willy And The Poor Boys,’ ‘The Blue Men’ etc. The album will appeal to fans of my earlier Be Bop Deluxe era whilst bringing a more contemporary twist to the songs. It’s a light-hearted, positive, good vibes album. I hope you will enjoy it.

Now in the grand tradition of their previous albums Richard and Rupert have handed Going Going Going's parts over to a hand-picked roster of producers from around the world…
