I have an affair, a love affair, with a thing
Yes I have an affair, a squalid affair with a thing
Well the preacher tell me, "Son, to love an object is a sin."
Now I call that thing J. Edgar, though it don't run no F.B.I.
Yeah I call that thing J. Edgar, though it don't run no F.B.I.
That's the end of this song, and I don't know why.
Four CD box set gathering A-sides, the would-be hits along with B-sides, tangential 12-inch tracks (the C-sides), and an excellent session for Los Angeles radio station KCRW from 1989.
Includes over a dozen indie chart hits including ‘Southern Mark Smith’, ‘Girl Go’, ‘The Human Jungle’, ‘16 Years’ plus a host of truly eclectic Butcher tunes from his early Glass recordings through his time at Creation.
