Easily Jim’s finest moment on the album in my opinion; I think that everything he plays during this song is just inspired and it was very obvious as he was recording his parts that he was right ‘in the zone’ during his time in the studio. I also remember spending a very cold couple of days at John Mitchell’s studio in Reading recording the drums but not caring a jot about the temperature simply because I was having a ball behind the kit. Little did I know at that time that it would take another two years to complete the fekkin’ album but hey, that’s another story altogether. I suppose the upside of the amount of time it took was the songs evolved into something really special so maybe I shouldn’t complain.
I had about four or five goes at the chorus for this one before coming up with a decent one. Plus the fact that the meaning of the song changed under my feet at least twice. Moan moan grumble grumble. I'm used to dashing off the almost final version first time, but I guess it can't be like that every time.
