Shortly after sample-heavy Hot Doggie by Colourbox appeared on the 4AD Compilation "Lonely Is An Eyesore", the label released a collaborative single between Colourbox and label-mates AR Kane as a Double A-Side. The result was less of a collaboration than intended. One side was nearly all AR Kane, the other side was nearly all Colourbox. It was the latter side that got the airplay, and that took the song to the top of the UK Charts.
Another one from Terry Hall, and another collaboration. This time it's with Ian Broudie, who released his version as the title track from The Lightning Seeds' April 1992 Sense LP.
Hall collaborated with Broudie on a few tracks on that album, and sang BVs on this track. A few years later, Hall recorded his own version for his solo LP "Home" - produced by Broudie. This take is pretty similar to Boudie's - with enough difference that I can definitely say that, although I love them both, I prefer this one.
The first of three songs featuring Scottish singer Dot Allison, here she features on vocals (and co-writing) on Dirge, the opening track from The Contino Sessions, a classic album by Death In Vegas.
