Didn't Know We Liked It
(Till We Tried It)

We were playing rough boogie for quite a while,
this kid came up he didn't like our style,
told us to play something new.

We didn't know we liked it till we tried it,
we didn't know we liked it till we tried it,
we didn't know we liked it,
we didn't know we liked it till we tried it.

He said you'll do no good playing rough soul,
keep on playing rock and roll
and then you will find something new.

(Chorus x 4...)

recording session that included didn't know we liked it

Steve is such a rock n roller. Dunno if this story is true or just a device for a song, but the truth is we love ALL kinds of music and it is only our punk sensibilities that bring the tracks together (lots of energy, passion, speed, plus a bit of public school intellectuality ha ha ha).
