I left out royal correspondent because it’s sucks.

My guernica was a mistake. I love that track. I put it in as track 11.

I'm with you on Royal Correspondent.

Also i should have said 'thanks' first. Just put this together as a couple of playlists. I did add Door to the River on the second as Nicky said that was a working title.

Food / chewed line aside, I love Royal Correspondent. One of my faves on KYE.

The bassline on Royal Correspondent is immense, more than enough to make it worthy of inclusion!

Royal Correspondence far from worst among KYE songs/b-sides.

Royal Correspondent was my song this morning on the bus, breaking quarantine for going shopping. (Ah, the fines don't come in until Friday so may as well until bought to your door!)

Band have spoken before how they wanted the Avalanches remix on the album but it came too late to be included instead of original.

Royal Correspondent absolutely pulverises Know Your Enemy's overall quality. Probably the worst lyrics on any Manic song. Impossible to listen past to even consider the fairly average music.

I used to think it was weak, but now I take it as the only comedy song (and that type of piss taking should be heard more from them) the band have done that they've put on an album.
You could argue Little Trolls is another comedy song.

I've never thought RC was a bad song, it's nothing amazing at all, lyrically it's got some poor stuff for sure "eat their food, even though it's been chewed" huh?? haha! I just played it now on my laptop as I type this and thought it was okay. Just okay. I just hope that the box set is the best they can make for the money and not a rip off like the forthcoming GATS set which I will only buy when it drops by £15 or more.

I just think, melodically, it's a very pretty song, and I like the contrast of lo-fi rhythm with the main acoustic track.
