Liner Notes
Recorded in the summer of 1983 in a place called Wellingborough, a small town in the middle of England where even the children are scarey! "Hey, mister, can you SEE in them glasses?" I get to sing and play things like guitar, sax and piano.

Max does the electric guitar. On bass is Rolo McGinty, and Princess Alice Thompson plays the organ. They're both in The Woodentops now, a group internationally recognised as being the shortest collection of pop musicians in the world. Playing the drums is Kevin Haskins, a charming neighbour of mine, and veteran of the Bauhaus conspiracy. Miaowula!

    is a beautiful song. I'm just listening to it now after many years and it's giving me goosebumps. I'll just leave it at that!
