They need to play it live again, such a good song!

This is my favourite live version from the Depot, London, 10 March 1999: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKlcPMatPLA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Suuuuch a good song, one of the best on 13. Would love to hear it live but fear it'll be wasted on an outdoor festival like Hyde park

They should have played it at the 100 Club show in 2012, that would have been amazing.

I used to hate this song because of how repetitive the chorus was. Oh, what I naive youth I used to be.

It's a bloody masterpiece.

Yep, great song, but can't think of a worse choice for Hyde Park or similar gigs.

They did reduce the length of a quite a lot though, and almost completely rejigged the song to make it more.... melodic is probably the word.

Something similar could probably be done with Battle, but it would lose a lot of its charm I fear.

Yeah and Caramel was for me almost the best moment in Hyde Park setlist. They played shit out of that song!

Also huge fan of Battle, hopefully they also dig it up some day.
