Shed Seven - On Stand By
The Rifles - I Could Never Lie
When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be “cured”. This often went along with shock therapies.

I wouldn’t mind being an enormous fuck off oak tree.
An electric what?
I said an enormous fuck off oak tree.
An oak tree? A big fuck off oak tree?
A big fuck off oak tree.
Is that bad?
That was the quote of the century, lbr.

- You’ve been in hospital a lot during the Cribs (3). How do medical staff react to rock’n’roll injuries?
- They often treat me with a certain amount of disdain, as they should do … well actually, I take that back. People make mistakes. So I hope doctors realise that it’s only human nature to make mistakes. They were nice to me after the NME awards thing because I allowed students to come in and actually document the whole process of fixing me up. Then they clocked that I was trying to steal extra pain medication just for my own … you know, just for fun, and they weren’t happy about that.”
