    Absolutely loving that... Hadnt heard of them before... Don't think that tune got a release either which if so is a real shame.

    I have that bottom organ, it's a Farfisa. First time I've seen it used outside my studio. Great.

    Gem is right, on repeat all day, loving it more with every listen. Hoping someone online will find a recorded full copy.

    I haven’t got the faintest what this one is about* but I am enjoying imagining it as an exhortation to our Trotskyist comrades to throw off their shackles and join us outside the party and against capital.

    *Probably about a lad named Trots who got banged up. Any info welcome.

    Freedom For Trots!
