This was originally written by Pete Townshend for his aborted Lifehouse sci-fi Rock Opera that never saw the light of day. It was the third single released by The Who relating to the aborted project, the others being "Let's See Action" and "Join Together."
The song was performed by The Who during an infamous TV appearance on the BBC's Russell Harty Show. The program was enlivened by Keith Moon's impromptu striptease as the bewildered host tried (without much success) to interview the band. The clip later featured on the The Kids Are Alright documentary.
