For my second tape, recorded in 1996, for some reason I decided to go "dance". The best thing about it was the packaging. I made a sleeve for the tapes out of red card and in each sleeve I included a hand made booklet of with all the lyrics in it, sort of like "The Thoughts Of Chairman Mao". It looked really really nice and people seemed quite impressed with it when I handed it out in pubs again, but nobody would ever say anything about it to me after they'd listened to it. I think they were embarrassed. The only new songs we re-did with The Validators were Mr Right
(which had the same lyrics as the second version of The Perfect Love Song
on Free At Last
and The Primal Rhythms of the Bolivian Nose Flautist
, although "I'll Never Drink Again" and "Dreadfully Continental" may, one day, emerge into the light again.
