I have no memory whatsoever of recording this, but came across it unmixed on a 4 track master cassette a few months ago. I must have not got round to mixing it down before taking the song into Durham Street Studio in Summer 1990 to be 'properly' recorded with the band.

It doesn't sound like my drum machine, perhaps it was one I'd borrowed from my brother? You can hear why we used synth bass on the single - the song was too fast for me to be able to play the bass line properly on a bass guitar! The bones of the song are all complete though; a couple of lyric changes from the single. Blatant New Order rip-off melodica and 'Hooky' style bass on the outro. Ill advised key change at the very end which was wisely dropped from the final version.
