havent heard this version , sounds like david thomas squealinf g away in the background. remember this being played a lot live 84/5, always a favorite, can picture hanley bobbing away and Craig thrashing.
I always thought of this as a bit of a nod to the film, 'O Lucky Man!' The ending in particular when Mick is seemingly incapable of smiling. I'm probably completely off base, but I love Mark E Smith and Lindsay Anderson, so I'm sticking with this view.
