Anyone else love this song? I think it's become one of my all time faves. MES with heart!
"Don't give a toss about private wealth
And history just repeats itself
Keep me away from the Festival"
But I wonder why the opening note is sooo loud it always hurts my ears and causes china plates to fall from my wall.
that album always gets slated but I love it meself..
It's my favourite lp by them. I read an NME review of the time, they gave it 10/10
Yeah the opening note is mega loud. There's loads of minor sound probs with that album but it gives it it's charm!
does get criticised because its regarded as them "selling out" but i think its very much an album of its time.
One of my favs is "book of lies" and thats not very poular with fall boffins.
isnt popular that is
Book Of Lies is great. Who sings the opening vocal, it's not MES is it? On the Shift work VHS (now availabel on dvd) he mimes it. Just wondered.
it's a guy called kenny brady who played violin on some fall stuff. might be wrong.
I can see the pull.
who were in the band at the time who sang on book of lies,sure i remember reading that in the shiftwork album note.
I know gavin friday (virgin prunes) occasionaly pops up on fall songs.
It's in my Top 10
Mark e Smith lyrics book thats come out recently? it's £30. Very nice actually. Loads of Shiftwork lyrics in there. It's limited to 2000 copies.
