That's the best track on Dogrel IMO. Not keen on the rest of it - Big is alright but I find his vocals feckin annoying on some of the songs.

That's a big part of their appeal to me there Jim. Any front man always gets bonus points for singing in their actual accent rather than american or those weird pseudo Sheffield accents that were cropping up in bands about 10 years ago.
Shove it up yer bollocks then!

It's more the lyrics than the accent the way he repeats lyrics over and over (and as you know I like The Fall!)

California Son - Morrissey
It's all covers, but Morrissey puts a unique stamp on them. His voice seems to get better with age, and is really quite superlative on this album imho. And there are 3 or 4 very strong stand out tracks.

You’ve done that one before.
Your Mum & Sister sent the CD back, they enjoyed the shag though, mother & daughter together, it’s always been a fave of mine.
Now that matey is a joke too, or is it.

Mozza’s great, funny as fuck, 3 notes? Maybe but they are 3 good notes.
His You Are The Quarry LP was a fave of mine back in the 00’s, a great album.

I really like him too and that album in particular. A great distinctive voice like Hugh's.
