Sheila's Wearing a Hat

Sheila's Wearing a Hat


And the vault creeeeeeeeaks open again. Back to Mindflux days, and we (re)visit a song that popped up again several times in subsequent years. Don't read too deeply into the lyrics, as this is an explicit ode to (read: ripoff of) Robyn Hitchcock and his zany English wordplay. Of course it can be well argued that RH's work was itself heavily influenced by legendary madcap Syd Barrett's post-lysergic ramblings, so we're really just following a trail of loonies back into history. So what else is new?

Al: Vox
Andy Hammond: Guitar

Gosh, maybe you could've made a career of being Robyn Hitchcock. I know he didn't, but maybe it would have turned out better for you.

I had a friend named Sheila who wondered why someone in my band had written a song about her. And true to the lyrics of the song, she's now dead.
