results in a man going down the garden, in his boxers, with two

Sometimes humour is best left unexplained'this is all a rush in
one way or another'written on a blue squire strat (or was it
someone's girlfriend), a blaze of inspiration enhanced with
some base riffs, it all begins with a triangle solo''nuff
- He's got a Wig on
Around for a while, inspired by Miles, in a kinda' blues/ jazz

- Friends in the Sky

- The Fair
A track at the centre of it all. Written in desperation, an
expression of a dark frame of mind, this was a catalyst for the
recordings that followed. The track is universally accessible, with
the slightly distorted chromatic progressions of the fair ground
recalling the mystery, fear, and excitement of the unknown.
