Our next single is really pop-art. I wrote it with that intention. Not only is the number pop-art, the lyrics are young and rebellious. It's anti-middle-age, anti boss-class and anti young marrieds.

-- Pete Townshend
Melody Maker July 3, 1965

Pete tells Disc and Music Echo that the Who's maxi-single is still in the works with the tracks "Water", "Don't Know Myself", "Postcard" and "Now I'm A Farmer".
