this record came like a bolt from the blue courtesy, as usual, of john peel. combining an infectiously ramshackle tune with a litany of people who suck (bowie, lou reed, elvis, tom jones, nietsche...), it represents a pinnacle that new bad things never again achieved. the other two songs on this single are pretty good too though.
as a bonus, here's an alternative version, not sure of the provenance of this - i got it on a compilation of festive fifty tracks.
::: new bad things - i suck
7" released on sticky records in 1994.
and he's welsh.
