Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction - Prime Mover (1987)
This British rock band's humourous, tounge-in-cheek lyrics are not to be taken at face value! Zodiac Mindwarp had just one hit in the UK in 1987 with Prime Mover, which reached #18 in the singles chart. The song was inspired by Hawkwind's 1977 hit Quark, Strangeness and Charm.
The band also achieved moderate success with their album Tattoed Beat Messiah which peaked at #20 (March 1988). Other 80s songs that didn't break the Top 40 included Back Seat Education (#49 - Nov 1987) and Planet Girl (#63 - April 1988). They managed to reach #1 in the UK Indie Chart with the High Priest Of Love EP during 1986 and #9 on the same chart in '86 with the Wild Child EP.
