Album: Which Bitch? (2008)
Charted: 57
  • songfacts ®
  • This schooldays recollection was the first single to be released from Which Bitch?.
  • Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) (from The View Are On Fire): "That's me getting five different characters and making them into one character. It's loads of girls from my school in loads of different scenarios. It's sort of an educational thing about a teenager going through school. It's all about the smokey teachers, petty things, but the lassie's a junkie. It's just saying don't do drugs (laughs). That was written at the end of our first tour with Babyshambles. We never really got round to finishing it 'cause we were touring so much and then once we got a bit of time, we just belted it out. Is it easy to write on the road? Nah, it's pretty hard actually. On the last tour, we were coming up with different tunes every night but just never remembering them the next day."
  • Bassist Kieran Webster explained the album title to The Sun February 6, 2009: "We're always being asked by girls we know and girlfriends if our songs are about them. Kyle can never remember so the title means "Which bitch am I singing about in this song?"
