I'm curious as to why the record company were hellbent on "Newcastle jam" being finished so it could be a single. I mean I guess it sounds fun and was likely to have a broader appeal than something dark like "nails in my feet". But it doesn't have a chorus! I assumed one must have been kicking around.. But it's not on this version.
I also wonder about "convent girls" .."You can touch" and "I am in love" sound kinda unpolished to me as if they had been relegated to b sides before recording but "convent girls" soubds classy. All three have similar sounding guitars though so maybe they were all punched out as b sides.
Also I love the middle bit of the bonus disc where fingers runs into black and white boy. All that studio chatter takes u there.
