The Pipettes second album, ‘Earth Vs The Pipettes’, produced by the legendary Martin Rushent, the semi-retired producer of The Stranglers, Shirley Bassey, Altered Images, The Buzzcocks, and, most famously, the Human League’s ‘Dare’, was written with the idea of imagining what a disco in space would sound like, an exploration of what might happen if all the genres and styles that have set the dance floor going for the last fifty years were loaded onto a rocket and fired into the stars.

What would Motown’s transition as Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross started to veer into Philly Soul and the emerging compositions of Larry Levan sound like if that development had happened on Mars? (Answers: ‘I Vibe U'; 'I Always Planned To Stay'; and 'Our Love Was Saved By Spacemen').

What would the disco divas and social misfits of the Seventies be listening to if Studio 54 existed on a giant space station orbiting Saturn? (Answers: 'From Today'; ‘Stop The Music'). How would the motorik Euro pop of the Eighties such as The Human League and Stock, Aitken and Waterman translate into the bedrooms of the children of the Eighties if they lived on some cool planet we'd never heard of? (Answers: 'Call Me', 'Thank You'). 

A pure pop album, leaving behind the realm of the three female harmony girl-group for the unison girl pop of Abba and the Pointer Sisters, moving towards the sounds of Chic-inspired seventies disco and eighties chart music, "Earth Vs The Pipettes" is chockfull of classic influences and killer pop songs, the kind of album that major labels struggle to make with teams of producers and writers.
