The Icicle Works – Understanding Jane (12″)

icicledFrom 1986 and some quite rocky Icicle Works. Produced by Ian Broudie from their 3rd Album, “If You Want to Defeat Your Enemy, Sing His Song” and is all driving guitars with a big chorus. B-sides start with soulful, bluesy cover of Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic” and a weird comedy blues rant about their record label and the downside of touring, called “I Never Saw My Home Town…” which starts with the immortal line

“Love is like a razor when you’re looking for a shave.

Shed off your dignity I’ll race you to your grave.”
