Commentary:

The Story of The Fall website describes it best:

"Spooky organ/bells/tinkled piano, sundry effects, a garage guitar riff and thumping drums combined with yells of 'check that out', 'Mr Moody's scruffed up', 'oh yeah', 'carefully', 'Mr Moody's lair' and Brix screaming 'you pep!' Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fall."

The song shares some lyrics with He Pep!, released on the same album, The Light User Syndrome.

This track has never been played live.
