Commentary
A studio recording - and has Lucy Rimmer providing lead vocals. One of only a handful of tracks without MES’s vocals. Obviously an outtake as it only appeared on the Receiver issues in its original studio form. The guitar at times sounds a bit like George Formby!

Shortish ramble through Jeff Lynnes song originally written for the Idle Race in 1968 and appearing on the "Birthday Party" album which was the second album after "Sgt Pepper" to have a gatefold sleeve.
