    General Commentthese guys are nothing short of scottish gods. they've got their own thing going, and you can't beat it. if you ever get a chance to see them live, it will blow you away. fiery rock at it's best.

    General Commentthis is a cool song. if you didn't know Dial means revenge in Welsh (the language the song is written in). So whenever a welsh person goes into an english phone booth they see "revenge". cool inspiration for a song.

    General CommentThe song was actually written from the guy from Super Furry Animals, thus why it is in Welsh. But still a great song performed by one of my favorite bands.

    General Commentnot to be a jerk but they "just" mentioned above that it's the guy from super furry animals. though he could be wrong. eh, it's a nice little song. i don't know why but i always thought they said something like "incanto" over and over through the song.
