John Otway and Wild Willy Barratt – Beware Of The Flowers (Cos I’m Sure They’re Going To Get You Yeh!) (1977)

In 1979, the compilation LP “20 of Another Kind” was a staple on our school bus. I have already posted Patrik Fitzgerald’s stone cold classic “Irrelevant Battles” from the LP here.

Otway and Barratt’s “Beware of the Flowers …”, etc, was always a favourite – not least for the killer fuzz guitar and a “so dumb, it’s clever” chorus. In recent years, the tenacious Otway has continued to perform this live to, no doubt, increasing bafflement among fans of all generations.

This was actually the B-Side of the classic “Really Free” single released in 1977. Folk punk comes no better.
