This 20 minute version of this song by the Rakes fucking rules



My story about seeing the Rakes in Dublin: I went with two mates, one of whom was the worlds biggest Morrissey fan. Anyway, of course Morrissey fucking turned up at the gig but she refused to believe we weren't taking the piss when we said "there's Morrissey" and pointed at him sitting with his little cadre of minders who are all forced to dress like Morrissey and have Morrissey's haircut. He left about halfway through and she never once looked over at him. The Rakes broke up about a month later.

Underrated landfill indie sleaze act all the same

I've had this joyful thing in my head since Robert Gordon (who covered it) passed away last week.
Big Crickets influence. I can imagine Dave Edmunds would have been all over this had they be UK based.


Robert Gordon's cover, featuring the legendary Danny Gatton on lead guitar.

One of the first cds I bought when I got a CD player in 1995.



The other CD I had was the police greatest hits. Still have both of them.
