Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:

The song was penned after hearing from upset locals in the quiet village of Laverton, near Norton St Philip. The villagers were concerned about the effects of a proposed 66m wind turbine and news of the song led to huge support for its release to help highlight the concerns of this small community.
Sil Willcox, a spokesman for the band said “Renewable energy has to be considered as an important part of the make up of our energy solutions, but imposing these turbines on communities after they have been opposed by local parishes and refused by local planners seems very unfair."
