Martin Carr tends to be pretty honest about some of his back catalogue, once describing Wake Up Boo! as the most cynical thing he’d ever done. Of I Hang Suspended he writes:
This was influenced by the guitar playing of Bernard Butler. The title was inspired by a line from Chimes of Freedom by Dylan. The rest of it is crap. I think Sice knew that as well because it took him ages to muster up enough enthusiasm to sing it.
Lazy Day, he says, is a song about a dream about Charles Manson, which is not obvious from the title, lyric (about 20 words in total), or music - 90 seconds, give or take, of rumbling guitar thrash interspersed with the simplest of melodies. It’s the kind of thing teenage indie-freaks play loud in the hope of annoying someone nearby.
