What is it about you skeptical Scotsmen? First Ed comments on HJ, and
This is from the Unconditional liner notes. Also, Pat identifies the
song as being about a TV show in the Chicago 1986 concert (I presume
there was only one that year!). There may be a film for all I know, as
well, but that doesn't seem to be about the show:
The Human Jungle The title comes from a rather noir little TV series
from the early Sixties wherein the great Herbert Lom played the
extremely sexy and not entirely unbrilliant Dr. Alexander Kordu, a
psychiatrist with the handy ability to sort out even the most
appalling cases within sixty minutes. I love that show, but I love
touring better. By the way, anyone who makes suggestions about sex
and travel is being extremely rude.
There's also a reference in the song to the time at which the show plays
("Every Tuesday half-past two...") and "Watch the telly, do the ironing..."
