Just in case you don't know the guitar driven, fizzy, punk, Sci-Fi classic 'Where's Captain Kirk?' was given the status Single Of The Week by music weekly Melody Maker and became the 1st number one of the official Indie chart launched in January 1980, where it stayed for 8 weeks. It also remained in the Indie top 30 for the entire year and was considered by BBC DJ John Peel to be the best Star Trek associated song. Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry starred WILLIAM SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY.
Stadium rockers R.E.M. liked 'Where's Captain Kirk?' so much they recorded a version of it to give away to their fan club members as a Xmas gift in 1992.
