Ladies And Gentlemen (Roll The Dice)

Album: West Rider Pauper Lunatic Asylum (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist and chief songwriter Serge Pizzorno told the NME June 13, 2009 about this organ-led number: "This is one of those 'Everything got very messy last night, but I wanted it to' songs. It's sung with experience. You can hear all those experiences in Tom's voice. It's a trip, a step back to take stock, before the climax."
