sung by John Linnell, The Audience


  • The first known live "love" version was released on TMBG Unlimited and the Dial-A-Song compilation. It was recorded in Berlin, Germany in March 1989 at the XTC Club, and the concert was recorded by Oliver Behrendt.
  • At the Johns' suggestion, the audience chanted "love" while stomping on the floor to provide the beat of the song.
  • "Two shows at Club Quattro very well received. It's hard to put one's finger on the difference between Japanese & Western audiences, though the difference is unmistakable. Both crowds applaud and scream and sing along (last night's audience sang the TMBG theme after we left the stage). The language barrier has a much more obvious effect here than in Germany or even Italy or Spain. The Japanese laughed at between-song comments but when Flans asked in English for everyone to raise their fist and shout "Love!," raising his own fist in example, we saw only three fists in the crowd of 600 plus." – John Linnell, Sunday, Dec 9 1990
