How can you not love a song which starts with the Keats reference “Vespers done…”? Or one which makes reference to minor Col U legend Bobby Svarc (who seemed to follow Jim Smith around a lot)? One of those songs with almost (but not quite) too many clever references for its own good, Fear My Wraith is classic mid-period Biscuit. Sorry, I’ll take my crap music hack hat off. Because that statue in Copenhagen is quite disappointing. And when your horse leads the field inside the first furlong of the National, you do think that it’s going to win, don’t you?
