Recorded on 4-track at The Plaza, Tynemouth 17.12.89.

This song was in the early stages of rehearsal and only recorded as we were short of songs for the session, which we'd been given in lieu of payment for a gig at Surfers Bar (also in the Plaza). You can hear we're a bit sketchy at how to finish the song, and the tempo wanders around a lot! I re-recorded this one with the 'Liverpool Love Parade', and again with Pure for 'The Birth Of The True' compilation. I prefer this version now, perhaps because of it's wobbly charm. You can hear our roots as a wannabe New Order in this version.
