Professor Wurzel's Disc Notes:
the release of Never Mind the Bullocks, Ere's The Wurzels
in 2002, The Wurzels planned to release a third single off
the album (two previous singles on the album 'Don't Look
Back In Anger' and 'Come On Santa!' had been released prior
to the album's release). They decided on the excellent recording
of the Catonia song 'Make Hay Not War (Dead From The Waist
Down)' - 'in support of the Anti-War Movement' according
to the disc.
the same time as the disc was due for release the USA and
the UK were finally setting a deadline for an invasion of
Iraq to bring about the downfall of Sadam Hussain: to prevent
any political problems the release was pulled.
So there never was a release of the single, but publicity CD versions had
already been pressed and distributed to
reviewers and radio stations. As a result this single is
now very rare and highly collectable.
single saw the first appearance of Jai Howe. Jai had recently
replaced Dave Wintour. Although Jai had played with the
band in the mid-eighties for a while this was his first
appearance on a single release.
