I very rarely bother about what Smith is singing, some would say shouting tunelessly about on Fall records. To me his voice is just another instrument, well more than that. the most important instrument in the band, ah. I'm not one for analysing his words of wisdom or trying to make out that his rantings are the profound words of a prophet for instance in Blindness then he says "I was talking to Jane Seymour" I know he is talking pish. One thing I do know is that he rarely writes lyrics complementing people or experiences so on Lie Dream of a Casino Soul he is not looking fondly on the cult of the northern soul scene. It is however a cracking tune and a rare example when the studio version is better than the Peel session.
