AllMusic Review by

This disc takes the title selection (a track which originally appeared on the album Fegmania!) and presents it as a single. The song, which exhibits subtle power-pop tendencies, features a strong tune (by turns clipped and soaring) propelled by a jittery, infectious drumbeat. The B-side cuts are okay, if somewhat bland by Hitchcock's usual standards. "Dwarfbeat" is a fast tune that in places shows psychedelic touches, while "Some Body" is a slower number with Byrds-style guitar and a very strong John Lennon influence. Both receive rather unpolished readings; the former selection in particular is noticeably spoiled by poor intonation. This is a mildly interesting, if unessential release.
