Australian singles charts:
Captain Zero entered the Kent charts on 29 November 1971 and peaked at #6. It was the #43 song on the Top 100 of 1972.
The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop:
In 1971 The Mixtures took the opportunity to travel to the UK, with two new members in tow.
They returned to Australia at the end of the year, issuing two singles in quick succession, Never be Untrue and Captain Zero.
The airy, giddy Captain Zero reclaimed The Mixtures’ magic.
