NICE DREAM

This song revels in a happy-life fantasy, but concludes that it can be nothing more than a 'nice dream'.

Heard at the end of the track are selections from an Artic-sounds tape of John Leckie's.

The demo version, available on the compilation Volume 13, is mainly an acoustic number featuring organ and strings.

Thom : 'We all debuted playing acoustic guitar on this in a sort of cosmic Kumbaya outside the studio. There's this awful photograph of us all sitting on a lawn with headphones on. The lyrics came out of a half-drunk dream I had, one of those where you don't really sleep properly. It's about our relationship with people generally'.
