It Really Hurts Me Girl
One of the best northern tunes ever and one which helped usher in the new sounds and styles being championed by Ian Levine. When it was first aired at the Mecca in 1974 it was practically a current sound as it had been released and bombed in the US the following year.
There is a village about 6 miles from Lanark called Carstairs and have often wondered why a group would take it's name from a place know for having the State Mental Hospital/Penitentiary and a railway station where the train from London splits in two one half heading west to Glasgow the other half going to the east and the capital.
