Just looked it up. I think I prefer the original! Their version of Walking In The Rain very much pales in comparison too. They're not a band I've ever listened to much before.

The originals:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32SkxLCZz_o

Elton Montello ... Jet Boy Jet Girl
(1977)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9B2D2gwms0

Some dispute here as to which came first, so I've included both.
Read various versions of the story here:
http://www.elsewhere.co.nz/fromthevault ... girl-1978/
here:
http://www.punk77.co.uk/groups/eltonmotello.htm
or here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elton_Motello

The cover version:
Angel Corpus Christi ... Jet Boy Jet Girl
(year unknown)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9KUpnV0X1U

How long before Kev points out that Angel Corpus Christi played on a Spiritualised album?
