When I was at school in the 70’s we were given books by Albert Camus to study in French. I really got into them so read a few more in translation. From then on I’ve always relished being in hopeless situations but have a positive Mr Micawber-like voice in my head. Usually something actually does turn up to resolve the situation andI’ve always kept my head just enough above water to breathe. So this song explains my situation over a beat and riff I came up with in the 90’s when I was an upstart Transport Manager at the Post Office spending all my wages on R'n'B hip-hop and dancehall CDs.
It has lots of musical parts that fit together like a jig-saw. Alongside the regular Sect, it features 4 different keyboard players; myself and Simon Rivers sharing an electric, Mick Jones on an upright and David Collard on the organ (alongside the regular Sect, Sean McLusky, Chris Bostock and Johnny Britton) Dave lives in America but luckily happened to be staying with his sister in Forest Gate; so, as we were just down the road in Bethnal Green, he came to the studio to say hello. Me and Sean soon had other ideas and decided he needed to do a bit of tinkling before we agreed to let him out!

A simply magnificent collection of songs. Already feels like a classic. Lovers of Edwyn Collins, Half Man, Half Biscuit, Vic Godard and Luke Haines should appreciate, as should everyone who likes great songs. Shifts from satire to tenderness half way through a couplet and gets better with every listen.. Séamus Duggan
