Previously unreleased second single by 1990s Sydney band Psyclone Smyle.

Psyclone Smyle were an indie rock-funk band from Balmain in Sydney, Australia. They were signed to Festival Records from 1991-1993 and released one EP "Real Soul Pleaser" in November 1991. They toured extensively for several years before disbanding in 1994.

This single was originally intended for official release in 1992, but was shelved due to contractual difficulties, and is only now being released on retrospective label Portable Hole.
