Description

Funky bass line, guitar with a wah effect and echoed vocals. The actor Jimmy Kane is not meant to be the protagonist of this song, it is merely a coincidence that his name was chosen. Given both the crude content of the song, and the possibility of the character becoming the title character of the album, it was not used on Showbiz, however was included on the earlier demo known as the Newton Abbot demo.[1]
