Sounds uncannily like the FHTE version of London Calling...

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I've no idea why they chose to rip off a two bob punk band. ;)

This is just so heartfelt and majestic, maybe the most English song ever written. My favourite moment is when the lead vocal gets drowned out by what looks like 9 foot high trumpet at 1:16.

And I'm sure Ray is sincere about what the lyrics say, but I love how he's not capable of laying down a vocal that sounds earnest. That double meaning, piss taking sound enriches all their songs and makes em sound much more modern than most of their mainstream 60s peers.
