This early demo sounds an awful lot like some around the campfire hippy dross, with some sort of trumpet, tambourine, and hand clapping intro. We then get Beatles/Beach Boys/Monkees melodies and ‘baa ba baa’ harmonies which are fairly amusing. The vocals aren’t great, the melodies are passable, the playing is ok. Naturally, aficionados will recognise the middle section which features the lyrics ‘all we want from you is the skin you live within’ which would later be updated to ‘all we want from you are the kicks you’ve given us’ in Motorcycle Emptiness with the same melody. Again it’s really only worth listening to for those interested in seeing how the band developed in the early days.
