    A 12 inch single for ’90s soft-tech pioneers System 7, fronted by Steve Hillage, previously guitarist for Prog Rock band Gong. The front cover was photographed by Trevor Key. The System 7 Altitude type was part of the photograph, not added in post production.

    The front cover lettering is a prototype version of Metsys, used with phototypeset Linotype DIN Mittelschrift, on which it was based.
