  • October 1990


Track five from 'Behaviour'.


This was written about the same time as 'So Hard', during the Behaviour sessions, and Chris' melody inspired Neil to write the lyrics then and there. The title comes from the fact that at the time of writing, there was a hurricane where they were recording. "You weren't supposed to go outside because there were dustbins flying through the air in Notting Hill Gate, and corrugated iron flying about. The wind made me think of anger. So the idea of the song was someone's gone round to see some couple… you know when you arrive at someone's house and there's obviously a major row going on and one of them's not there. It's a couple, and he's a wife-beater. Everything he says is a lie."
