I love tux on but i think it is the perfect example for a perfect b-side. It is ace musically but lyrically it would have been a bit out of place on cas (maybe too obvious a subject matter??). Same with lady nina. Knowing these things made marillion such a great band with such great everything...

Interesting chat about Tux On and Lady Nina too!

Reminded me of this old interview, members might find interesting...

"Let me ask you this then: what’s the worst song in your back catalogue?

Oh let me have a look at this long list? It’s probably a couple of b-sides. Tux On was pretty bad. Lady Nina was another one – although it was great fun recording it."

I hadn't heard this for years. But today I put an old disc on in the car and this track came on. And I thought "wow, I love this". It was a forgotten song and it was great listening to it again after so many years. I hadn't even seen this thread before. Weird!

Thank God someone else! I started having spasms when Freaks kicked off at the Convention. Needed a nice sit down and a cup of tea after that one. :oops: :)

I wonder why it wasn't included on the album? It certainly ties in with the theme of fame and failing to cope with it!

I love how it sounds - the opening is so low down that if you're not paying attention it really makes it sound odd. When I listen to it in the car it almost sounds like a completely different song!
