Commentary;
A very catchy number, with yet another mention of wolverines (also found in Service and Session Musician). The Peel session recording had a part of the song which used the music from Elves (not of course all that original to begin with), for which Ed Blaney was responsible. This section was soon dropped from live and all other released versions.
