GUEST,JohnB Lyr Req: Strangeways Hotel (Mike Harding) (35) RE: Lyr Req: Strangeways Hotel (Mike Harding) 24 Jan 10

I always thought that the spoken lead up was the best part of the song.
Something about a guy and his brother walking down the road and accidentaly dropping an empty suitcase in the bank and cos they were wearing stockings over their heads as it was so cold, people started throwing money into it and they didn't want the money to get lost, so they closed the case and picked it up, then the police came and he hit one on the tuncheon with the back of his head and his brother hit the other cops foot with his groin.
Well it goes on a bit and that's how they end up in the Strangeways Hotel, just by Boddington's Brewery, if either of them are still there.
