Weirdly, Andy Partridge managed to come up with that song during their "loud, brash, early 80s synths" phase, so the original treatment was a bit different. But the arrangement didn't take much tweaking to get to this version, and the full folk workup really suits it well. Thanks for that!

I'm rather amused that a cover won Best Original Song at the Folk Awards. Then again, it's not exactly Best Traditional material, either, and it deserved to win something.

Or, equally amusingly, the win is credited to "All You Pretty Girls – Andy Partridge (performed by Jim Moray)", so you could argue that Andy is getting the credit for his own song a mere 24 years late.

Still, either way - WIN!! :-)
