"I've got syphilitic hetero friends in every part of town"
That's how it starts .....ominous, mad, diseased......then you get romance and optimism (sort of) and it ends with white noise that either represents the doomed sound of how the song began or the feeling of exhilaration that came afterwards.
One of their best songs and the Reid brothers left it off any proper album too.
Live Peel Session from one of the greatest (and meanest) put-down lyricists - best lyricists overall actually - but he had a particular knack for telling people to fnck off. The notorious B-side "Your Chosen Life" among the most vicious put-downs ever .......but this one is more, um, direct.
