There's excellence and then there's ABBA.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

This is one of the best songs from the "Spider on vocals" era but somehow only made it to b-side status...

Yeah I agree.

A real shame Spider didn't do at least one solo album. I always liked the charming way he sang, but towards the end of the Sans Shane Pogues, his sour vinegar singing was achieving a new power and distinctiveness. I bet he had another few Tuesday Mornings in him and his old mates, including Shane and probably Strummer, could have passed on some material.

He had that post Pogues project, I recall some demos but not sure what happened. Not sure if the old Friends of Shane list is still going but there was always good updates on there. The Wake of Medusa website was never too good with info I found.
