Single: Cheryl


In the summer of 1991, having now admitted to being "Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure", Otway had teamed up with punk poet Attila the Stockbroker and the pair had produced a surreal rock opera called Cheryl. Based around the Bob Lind song Cheryl's Going Home, the rock opera was an every day tale of satanism, trainspotting, drug abuse and unrequited love. The duo, along with Richard Holgarth released Cheryl as the single through Strike Back Records to promote the album after being popularly received at that year's Edinburgh Festival. The B-Side, Boys in the Hood also featured the nerdy MC Trainspotter And The Platform 2 Live Crew.
