“Tremendous fun. Every precious second of it” The Sunday Times
“As subtle as a full English Breakfast and just as satisfying” The Times

A romping piece of old school R+B, the track was written by Wilko and Johnny Kidd and The Pirates guitarist Mick Green, the song Going Back Home was originally released by Dr Feelgood on their 1975 ‘Malpractice’ album.
Mick Green’s work with Johnny Kidd on tracks such as Shakin’ All Over and Please Don’t Touch was one of the things that first bonded Roger and Wilko when they both attended an awards ceremony in 2010, Roger Daltrey “It turned out we both loved Johnny Kidd & The Pirates. They’d been a big influence on both our bands. That heavy power trio sound, backing up a singer; it’s a British institution. No-one does that better than us.”
