More info:

One of two singles off the Arbor Vitae album. There are two philosophical quotes on the front cover (down the left-hand side):

"People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth." Raoul Vaneigem - The Revolution Of Everyday Life

"Never sacrifice present good for the good to come. Enjoy the moment, Avoid any matrimonial or other association that does not satisfy your passions for the very beginning. Why should you work for the good to come when it will exceed your desires anyway and you will have in the Combined Order only one displeasure, that of not being able to double the length of days in order to accommodate the immense range of enjoyments available to you?" - Charles Fourier

The thanks list covers the usual names and "basically everyone else in the entire UK... Except the fucking NME". This is because a live review from the previous year's tour had labelled Lance "the Filipino Black Francis". He is, of course, of Chinese descent.
