As we plough on into my most hated month of the year (back to work tomorrow), I thought i'd post this. Staple on the live circuit in late eighties and early nineties Mega City Four. January, from this session is one of me favourite ever tracks and has been my constant companion every January for nearly twenty years.

But do they sound any like Motor City Five?

Here's a poem by the boys from Chaotic Dischord, I like the end very much, UGH!:

"Me and My Girl"

Me and my girl went seal clubbing, down on the beach we smack 'em on the head
Me and my girl went seal clubbing, keep on doin' it til they're all dead
Seal clubbing, oh yeah, seal clubbing, oh yeah, seal clubbing, oh yeah

(Repeat 2x)

Right let's hear all you f*ckers go ugh!
Ugh! Ugh! Ugh! Double ugh - ugh ugh!
Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!
All you f*ckin' seals - ugh!

F*ckin' seals, hate the bastards
