Being locked down on planet earth seeking for extraterrestrial love, Long Tall Jefferson surrounds himself with an imaginary world. Adjusting antennas for long searched signals and preparing himself for a future departure. Awaiting for this day to come, he spends his time in a lovable solitude or as modern-day singles call it: playing Planet-Tinder.
