It is the best song on the album. The St. David Hall version is even better.

And iTunes and Qobuz and probably others.

Not to mention that we no longer have sleeve quotes for the singles either.

Some of my absolute favourite manics songs have been their b-sides over the years so to lose those has been like a hole in my heart! I still remember vividly working through their back catalogue and discovering the delights of their b-sides for the first time - "Sepia huh? What's this like..."
So maybe the format will return some day, who knows. Stranger things...

A gray disk, the colour of Chiba sky.

Disk beginning to rotate, faster, becoming a sphere of paler gray. Expanding -
And flowed, flowered for him, fluid neon origami trick, the unfolding of his distanceless home, his country, transparent 3D chessboard extending to infinity.
Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Yeah same, really miss them.

I remember in 96/97 I was a nipper collecting their back catalogue of singles, then one day I found a site which sold a double CD of b-sides and rarities - about 40 songs from 89 to 97 - which I absolutely played to death. Properly exciting times.

I don't mind it, but still think the chorus is too sickly. Think the part of the song that preceedes it would work as a chorus. Also not a fan of the "Don't Stop Believing" guitar bits that pop up throughout the song.

In all honesty you would think they could still produce some CD singles, maybe with the regular track, the acoustic version and the instrumental on it, say £4.99 each.

I'd like to think even if they were limited to 1000 / 1500 copies they would sell out pretty quick. Surely there are still enough die hard fans around to buy them.

Ah well, I can only dream
