Northampton – Sci-fi Pop Planning Promotion

More New Town nostalgia: The Northampton Development Authorities had a novel approach to boosting investment – releasing a single. The a-side of the single was called 60 Miles by Road or Rail (the distance to London). The b-side, featured in this old news clip was Energy in Northampton, about extraterrestrials choosing Northampton as a landing site. Both were sung by Linda Jardim – also a vocalist on Buggles’s Video Killed the Radio Star.
