Tripping Along The Ledge



I once spent a drunken evening attempting to explain to Kurt Wagner exactly how much I loved this song. In retrospect, I think the man took my point.

    They played the Olympia around the time of the Is a Woman album. I was working for The Slate at the time and got on the guestlist. Got chatting to them afterwards and went backstage with them. There was a girl in the band and my friend might have scored with her. Roddy Doyle also came back to say hello and they hadn’t a clue who he was so I introduced him. Fuck I could only have been about 21, straight out of Mayo… but I didn’t give a fuck.
