Ostpolitik – the process of West Germany getting cool again with the rest of the world. What does this have to do with the song though? Not a lot I can only assume, this being another instrumental – something the band have been increasingly fond of in recent outings. I’m not sure why though as most of their efforts have been crap or average, but then I’m not a fan of bands doing instrumentals in general. Appearing as a B-Side to It’s Not War, this features mostly scratchy guitar, a simple beat, some piano – and it’s the same couple of riffs over again for about three minutes, aside from a minor diversion near the end. Another oddity then, not as bad as some, but really only worth listening to once unless you’re into that sort of thing.
