The number one on the 1988 Festive Fifty, announced on 28 December 1988. Peel's growing dissatisfaction with the "conservative" nature of the list continues, despite his personal enjoyment of many of the songs that made it on. At one point on the final night, he bemoaned his audience's predilection for "young lads strumming guitars" at the expense of the other genres he played on his show.
Startlingly excellent. I have this on 7" and was lucky enough to see them twice in 1988/9. I caught Pete Evans' drum stick as it was hurled into the audience at the end of one gig, took it home and was very happy. I don't have it now :( I have jammed this before but love it and was reminded of it again today.
