A truly weird single, the sound of Kevin Rowland baring his soul on vinyl as the band disintegrates around him. This particular single is legendary for a reason. This early prototype of Kev's confessional soul gospel provided a template for the style that would permeate much of the work he did in Dexys Mark II and III. I love it, but it's not for everyone.

Review from Smash Hits, 11 December 1980:
"Now this really is a pain in the butt. A good band that seem to be a mite confused about this, ahem, new soul vision business. (Stop sniggering at the back there!) They blow their horns in fine style yet this Kevin Rowland chap blows the whole song when he opens his mouth. His voice, in short, is out of order. Soul is about communicating drama, passion and a whole spectrum of emotions but Rowland is content to wallow in his own self pity and sounds as if he is in urgent need of medical attention. The split in the ranks is probably for the best."
