Like fellow travellers Big Boss Man, The Bongolian and the Qualitons, André M could surely find no greater happiness than being transported back to 1969 and forced to repeat it in a sort of mod-themed Groundhog Year-type experience for the term of his natural life. But what’s a man do about such an affliction? Seek help for obsessive nostalgia perhaps? What? Are you mental? This is 1969 we’re talking about! What you do, of course, is write Dodged A Bullet – a scorching wah-wah and Hammond-drenched car chase theme from a non-existent TV show that you wish you’d been asked to score. And then write Cat’s Cradle – an even groovier Hammond-drenched dancefloor cut for a club in the city in said non-existent show where all the city’s underworld kingpins and dollybirds hang out. And then release it on vinyl 7″ in the real world. Yeah! Groovy, baby.
