Slippy Floor

BackdropA one-off single to tie in with the current tour (the Glasgow leg of which I managed to catch last Saturday - brilliant show - much laughs and thrills- see Edinburgh Man's pics here: Pics of The Ferry, Glasgow 14/1109). A song of many parts, starting with a gorgeous bass line as MES intones, 'We're gonna get married/On the floor of behest.' Main part is a repetitive but addictive guitar riff along with seemingly random observations on the slippy floor in view of the Taj Mahal. All you get is a sloppy Fall? The typically lo-fi tape recordings at the end include what sounds like a tasty slide guitar based song snippet and another of those 'rhythms tapped out on the kitchen table with a spoon' jobs. 'So, apart from mixing that, there's not really much more to do with it, is there?'
