Which do you think is the Wildhearts best ever b-side?

Personally I love OCD, probably the Wildies finest recorded moment.

Impossible for me too say for certain, but at the moment its probably Hate The World Day for me...

god , hmmm very tough question.

29x the pain
show a little emotion
mindslide
hate the world day
beautiful thing you

just to name a few lol

The Wildhearts were just too good at writing songs and making music the fact that them 5 songs are only b-sides not to mention the other 30 odd others that are truley classic.

I have to agree, two way idiot mirror is my fav wildhearts song ever(closely followed by everlone). its also never ever played live which is a shame. seems to be a forgotten gem of a song.

I saw it played live at Ginger's 37th birthday at the Garage. It was a bit good!

Other songs played that night included Can't do right for doing wrong, Got it on Tuesday, Hate the World Day and Friend for 5 minutes. Rather spanking!

Bloody 'ell!!! TWIM is by far my favorite B side also, and only second overall to "Shoes". There is some fine musical taste on this here board!!

Have you heard the acoustic version recorded at Camden Barfly '02....fucking ace!!!....and rather amusing to hear Ginger getting the crowd to fill in with "do do's".

Chees, Keith.

I haven't heard the acoustic version.

Never knew it had ever been played live.

aahhh....I'm guessing the wildheartsbootlegs site.

I'm sure that DINGWALL can help you out. If only that gig had been recorded professionally........Surpassed only by "Potatoes" in my view.

Presumably, you'll be at the Bastille on the 5th?

Nah, AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I canny make it to the gig, I am completely and utterly skint. Was made redundant a month ago and just recently got a new job. Won't get paid until the 28th of July. I know it's only bout £10 for a ticket but I ain't got a spare quid.

Nevermind, just need to hear about it from all the lovely folks on here. It would have been the 5th time I'd seen an acoustic show anyway. I'm sure there will be a next time soon.
