Seduced reflection in the chrome, there’s petrol stains outside your home…
Following their ‘Wild Things‘ EP, this is the second single released by the SATB’s Siouxsie and Budgie side project, the first and only from their debut LP ‘Feast.’ It reached #21 on the UK singles chart and was followed soon after by ‘Right Now.’
Thematically the song is about revenge against a lover. Whether that retribution is a violent act evoking shades of The Normal’s ‘Warm Leatherette‘ or merely allegorical is unclear… suffice it to say he didn’t miss the girl.
Yet another slick and sensual sleeve design from the Siouxsie camp, it’s sexy packaging like this that makes collecting 7″ vinyl such a joy. Designed by Rob O’Connor.
