Comments: "I did the vocals for 'Strachan' on the 19th March 1996, my
23rd birthday, and I got me good'n'drunk before I was sent into the booth to
do it. I think we were looking for a certain Shane McGowan-esque quality for the
vocal. I dunno if we got it."
You Can Only Love Someone (Murgatroid) CD Single
"You can only love
someone so much, but you can hate them all the way to Hell" is the truism
recited over the top of aggressive guitars to start, a middle-eight string break
and more guitars to finish. Like that other great single-line song, "There
is no love between us anymore" by Pop Will Eat Itself, the repetition only
enhances the lyric. Lovely. (JP)
