Number of known performances:
Multi-part epic song (including a banjo section not as yet reproduced on stage) in the style of The Chiselers, though very different! Based on a ditty originally written by Rob Barbato (this isn't reflected in the song credits on the official release of the track) and sung at the Bilston gig (details as above) on the occasion of MES's birthday. Ths song at first formed part of Wolfe Kidult Man before assuming its own identity. It's the longest studio track released by The Fall.
