About Trump voters, the sort of ignorant rich Americans in a Golf cart being proud and feeling superior to know that Majorca is a part of Spain. I find it amusing that this one is so heavily rejected around here onviously only because the lyrics come across unusual? It's a mean dark song and a very good one. Also listen to the guitar solo. Give it a (second) try.

Sorry, just listened again (stupidly) and the "music", such as it is, is just as bad as the lyrics.

Right now I'm struggling to think of a worse track ever release by MK.

It certainly is different it has to be said!

Well, no sorry needed, you and dmg seem to be part of a surprisingly small group of people who don't have much pleasure with the new album. That's perfectly fine with me but I stay with my description about the song and all I can do is shrug my shoulders in pity. Most songs on DTRW are worse than this one from my point of view.

I can't speak for DMG but I have every track except this one, although I have still to find the time to sit down and listen to the bonus vinyl tracks.

It is part of the fun and also very astonishing how different many songs are discussed. But there is no right or wrong of course. I find this song unusual, yes, maybe even strange, but very good and original. I must admit I haven't had too much time today and yesterday and was just flying over the many posts. If my impression about both of you was wrong, I apologize.

I didn't doubt that you have all tracks.

Your comments on this particular track may as well speak entirely for me as I feel the very same!  Say, is that a saxophone?

I bought the blu-ray but as previously mentioned was holding off on buying the box so have "obtained" the vinyl bonus tracks.

I haven't heard any bad reports about the vinyl quality of the box yet so looks like I will be getting it.

Early start on Saturday to try to obtain The Boy.

I had ordered the Box weeks ago at a Dutch retailer Dutchessy had recommended, but he said he didn't get the Box last friday. So I cancelled and now ordered at bravado.de which I had reservations about but today they mailed me that my order is about to get shipped. 105 Euro incl. shipping. I hope to get the box this week.
The vinyl bonus tracks are available here at AMIT in good quality.

Yes, I got the vinyl bonus tracks on Sunday. But with new MK tracks I like to sit down and listen to them properly on my hifi and I just haven't found time yet. :)

I still think Badges, Posters, Stickers and T-shirts is one of the worst songs in my opinion. Les Boys is a close second one. ;D The Rainbow recording is more or less “OK” if you ask me. But this one, well, could have been a non disclosed bonus track indeed. ;)

Observational and both about dire musical acts, both Sultans and Les Boys are classics in my book.  It's like the camp follow-up to Sultans.  ;D

I like both Les Boys and Badges
but, as a non english speaker, my main focus is on the music
