The second single from Five Thirty; which is a massive leap in the opposite direction the the debut, Catcher in the Rye. The opening chords of Air Conditioned Nightmare sounds like it is Day Tripper by the Beatles. Within the opening track, I am sure that there is the classic lyric, “is your name Douglas Hurd?”
The b-side is a Hendrix wah fest Mistress Daydream, which is also the closing track on the US version of their album Bed.

Below is a photo I took of Tara Milton, when Five Thirty appeared with The Bell Tower and Chapterhouse on 11th October 1991. The venue was the Student Union at Southampton University. This is officially my first fan photo I took, and Tara was carrying a bottle of booze.
