Commentary:
This has a heavily edited; entire middle-eight spliced in between 2:17 and 2:42, in which Simon Wolstencroft seems to struggle to keep up with the rest. This song has never been played live

A vague memory stirs in the back of my mind that the late great jazz trumpeter and musical iconoclast Miles Davis heard this and expressed an interest in playing with The Fall as a result of same. (RO 051207)
