Fallowfield Hillbilly

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Liam Fray told Manchester Confidential about this track: "'Fallowfield Hillbilly' is about the students. They come with a thousand quid to spare that they spend on some Joy Division B-sides and think that they can tell you all about your culture. It's not meant to be nasty about students in general - in fact it's about one person I met on a bus with eye liner and one glove on who thought that he was an expert on Joy Division. Its taking the piss, its not like we are sharpening our knives looking for people."
