Mario's Cafe. Railway Jam. Date with Spelman. You're in a bad way. Memo to Pricey. Hobart Paving. Clock Milk. Conchita Martinez. No rainbows for me. Here come clown feet.
Junk the morgue. Chicken soup. The LP begins with a short reading of "A cigarette, a cup of tea, a bun A bit of internet research shows that this is a Dirk Bogarde poem called 'Steel Cathedrals' which ends:. Sailors going to Chatham, soldiers going to Crewe. Aching bulk of kit and packs, tin hats swinging. The station clock with staggering hands and callous face. A cigarette, a cup of tea, a bun. It sounds as though Bogarde is reading the poem himself.
The start of track 2, 'Railway Jam', has the first real classic sample, a fairly easy one this, taken from Michael Powell's Peeping Tomwhere Helen Stevens played by Anna Massey first introduces herself to the duffel-coated Mark Karlheinz Boehm. Railway Jam - Saint Etienne - So Tough (Minidisc) is the scene:.
After a short burst from Suggsy "Education, that's what I need" track 4 is 'Calico', which I like to think refers to the character played by Diana Dors in Tread Softly Strangeralthough the lyrics do not really support my theory. At the end of the song is another quote:. As with The ReckoningI had a jolt of recognition many years ago whilst half-watching The Picture of Dorian Gray, when George Sanders, playing Lord Henry Wotton, replies thus in his inimitable fashion when, if I remember correctly, being asked why he wore his hat indoors, by a small boy.
Unfortunately I can't find a clip of this scene. Immediately after the George Sanders quote comes another intruiging one:. And washed it down with a bottle of beer! Took me a while to work this one out, and it's a film I've seen quite a few times, but after the wikipedia article on 'So Tough' suggested that That'll be the day was one of the films sampled for the album, I had another look and realised that it comes from David Essex's character, Jim Mclaine, as he abandons his education and rides off into an uncertain future, leaving his friend played by Robert Lindsay to go on alone to take their exams.
Here's the clip which features the lines:. I remember vividly sitting in the passenger seat of a car being driven by a friend Paul Bates - hi Paul!
