In 1984 Madness released their final (at the time) single with Mike Barson .Lead vocals ,this time, were perfomed by Carl Smyth with backing vocals by Suggs and co. The song is allegedly about an informer during the troubles in Northern Ireland. The video was nowhere near the usual jokey Madness of old as the subject matter would probably explain.Micheal Caine contributed his voice to the song in a reference to The Ipcress File where Harry Palmer repeats his name under torture. B-side is If You Think There’s Something (see last video for clip)
Michael Caine can be found on several formats : 7″/12″/7″picture disc/doublepack gatefold with The Sun And The Rain bonus picture disc and of course the album Keep Moving.
It peaked at number 11 in the charts.
