This highly charged Johnny And The Self Abusers original, although characterised by its "in-your-face" bassline and
the reverb added to Jim's refrain "Take it on tonight, tonight, tonight", was still a short by-the-numbers punk
standard. It was probably an older song from the set as the group weren't experimenting with saxophone or other instruments.
It still made the grade however and was formally recorded for their second demo tape. And unlike most of the
Abusers' material, the early Simple Minds thought it worthy enough to include it in their earliest
set lists. (And to even open their gigs as they did on the 30th July 1978 where the first bootlegged version of the song appeared).
Like most of the Abusers' fare, it was eventually dropped and was never revisited.
It was formally officially released on the The Early Years 1977-78 CD in
March 1998. Questions over legalities, especially the financing of demo tape,
saw the CD being swiftly withdrawn.
The lyrics have never been published.
