Gem Of A Bird

Album: Which Bitch? (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Drew McConnell from Babyshambles plays bass guitar on this track. They all sat in a circle and recorded the song live.
  • This is about Kyle Falconer's girlfriend Katie Gwyther who duets with the singer on the song. Falconer explained to The View Are On Fire: "There were no plans for her to actually sing on it. 'Cause I'm not saying anything good! It's just saying how my bird is always telling me how to spell stuff and everything. But I know better than her. And so forth, man. It does what it says on the tin."
