I'm sure that, if pressed, there would be a lot of Sisters songs Von would deny all knowledge of.

i though it sounded like von, and i've listened hard enough & often enough Wink

it's cack, but it's him. Wierded Out

and driver is him too. i'm sure.

that recent gary marx interview he talked about the track "heartland" being his own tune with a few of his words, which von modified... so maybe "driver" is all marx's original words, with von's tune? or smoething?

wide receiver

it's official. it is a very definitely a "real" sisters track.

real in that it was penned and recorded by the man himself, anyway. Rolling Eyes

not long after they'd got back from the states, circa 84, the band had begun writing material for FALAA.

the story goes that von was really into american football after the trip and he turned up at rehearsal one day with a cassette tape, saying he had this fantastic track he wanted to work on.

it was wide receiver.

sounding like a plodding dirge with a fairground-style guitar line (my description), the only lyric von had come up with at that point was something about a "wide receiever" (american footy reference) and then some dodgy sixth form rhyme about "... deceive her"

groovy Wierded Out

ahhh, dear old von and his "baby pictures", eh? Wink

See, I said it was about American football! Or did I say it was about baseball? I get my English sports confused...

Sounds like you're quoting something there. What's the source?

I happen to also be a fan of the works of Groucho Marx. Double Marxist?

completely unrelated, but I'm sure 'wide receiver' or 'wide receivers' was a credit at the end of the wake video.

"wide receivers- boyd steamison (for merciful release) : the ashfield mofos"

basically, the band's personal security.
