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)
