MACC LADS TRACKLIST Ma-Mo
Most agree that Knobby's version is the more wholesome recording.
Baldy sent his kids away
whilst the Lads recorded this
for the B-side of the ill-fated Eh Up! single.
Beater- My version is the best.
I reworked it so no one else could ever play it. Ha!
Chorley- Why was she going to Morecambe?
Muttley- Shut up, you long-haired mincing faggot.
Sadly this song was only ever played once:- when it was recorded.
Eagle assures me that the horn sound is an authentic Porsche horn.
this means that non of mine are real Porsches.
Chorley- I have no recollection of this song at all. How does
McCavity- Its the one with the crap drumming.
(Interview stopped when McCavity spat meths on Chorley,
& chased him with a zippo).
IN THE BOAT
This story comes from a drunken stag night when the Lads were watching
a grubby video...
'groom to be' claimed he could not make out who was who and what was
in the pile
of naked squirming bodies. He freeze-framed the tape, pointed to a pink
bit near a
tongue, and asked what it was.
clit!" Chorused the Lads.

I thought it was a phone box at first.
boxes are smaller and not as wide.
It picks up two sailors, one under each arm and
Dread- So 'im run out to de fancy dress shop, innit?
An 'im am buying de sailor's outfit.
An 'im go
back in de bar, an 'im wait. Innit?
O'Peesha- You fucking what?
This song contains my second favourite ever piece of pop music.
For those who are interested, its
the "Oh, right you are.." part.
In the unlikely event of anyone wishing to know more...
you can't beat 'Poor People of Paris' by the great Winifrid Atwell
Stez- There's a bootleg tape going around from a gig around 1992.
The version we do of this song is
so fucking hard... I think I'm going to have to hurt somebody.
Beater- Huh? Oh, bollocks.
During the concerts at which I have been present, this tune is undoubtedly

Muttley- I wrote this after that Brussels football disaster in

Except the Macc
"Who will be Miss Macc '85?" And loads of pictures of hounds in
Stez- You locked yourself in the bog for hours with that paper.
O'Peesha- I think that was the last time they held the Miss Macc
Decades of tradition ruined
by a pop song. Who said rock n roll can't change the world?
First game of the season we found the Moss Rose was now full of seats!

O'Peesha- Everytime they stood up, we got this view of sweaty

We made up

We lost 1-0 to Fulham, if anyone's interested.

Beater- The first time we recorded this, I played drums. Because
I'm a better drummer than him.

Stez couldn't remember
the words, so he sang 'Fucking Gudnt!' all the way through.
It was arse.
