    Pretty much one of their best songs. Studio version from FWOF could be all you had to hear from NMH. Shame there's no "real" studio version.

    I go moist for Julian's saw playing, but no version can beat Hype City Soundtrack.

    Probably the highlight of the evenings when I saw Jeff in London last month. Really glad he played it on both nights :)

    Holland b-side's definitely the best.

    Jeff on Engine : "That song was written in.. I...I was really depressed and my life was completely crumbling around me, and then..I wrote that song and got really happy for 5 minutes, and then I put it down on my answering machine so I wouldn't forget it. And then I got terribly depressed again (laughs). And my life began crumbling again."
