Oliver: Mudwimin - Have a Good Time (14 December 1991)
This remains a marginal call for inclusion. When I first listened to the 14/12/91 recording, this piece of swamp rock caught my ear but not my interest. It wasn't until I listened to the show again that I found myself drawn to the track, if not entirely seduced by it. It's rare to find a track which you go from liking to cold-shouldering almost on a line by line basis. I think it's the "give out, take in" refrain that does the trick.
It may also be because it reminds me of a track from the 9 November 1991 show that I turned down, but which has been bothering my memory. Play Have a Good Time back to back with Sacrificial Shack by Pain Teens and you have a great split single that never was.
