We never played live.
I originally wrote the lyrics around Sept/Oct 1976. We recorded it after the 'Polydor' Xmas party In December 1976.
Everybody at Polydor loved the single and the press office wanted to get 500 pressed up to give away as a promotional exercise. Unfortunately it was at the time that the EMI refused to press the Pistols 'Anarchy In The UK' single. Believe it or not the factory refused to press it as the lyrics might upset the girls in the plant (the plant was in Walthamstow!)
It actually came back to the MD of 'Polydor' who said and I quote, "it's more than my jobs worth to get the single pressed". We then copied loads of cassette's and distributed them throughout the business. I might still have some of the reviews somewhere so I will try and dig them out and hopefully you'll be able to update this page.
Can be heard on Bored Teenagers Volume 4 Compilation album.

Yes, 'Dennis Munday' was 'The Jam's' 'A&R' guy. He worked at Polydor Records from the 70s through to the mid 80s.
