Butterfly Collector


Q: Why do Butterfly Collector as a single?
A: I've recorded several of The Jam's songs before, Butterfly Collector included. The obvious approach is to play it as an acoustic piece with a solitary guitar/voice. I didn't want to do that. The original (b-side of Strange Town) is quite short and doesn't have time to explore the tune much. This has short instrumental passages. Tales From The Riverbank was also on the shortlist and I've tried to add a bit of the feel of that one in here. The result is still quite sparse, despite being electric. There is a lot of venom in that lyric.
