"Superheroes of BMX" as written by and Dominic Aitchison Stuart Leslie Braithwaite....
the following lyrics are taken from what sounds like a telephone conversation, probably between martin and the band's manager (although this is not confirmed!).

how're you doing? (martin's voice?)
(~~~~~~?)
yeah 'bout the phone or something.
alright
really, how you doing? ok?
not bad and you?
aye, pretty good like, what you been up to?
ah this and that you know (~~~~~~~~?)
what's that? i'm a wee bit better.
aye!
aye! i had a pretty good night that night.

... vocals are then drowned out by music

    General Commentbefore deciding on the name Bloc Party, Bloc Party were briefly known as Superheroes Of BMX

    Mogwai has remixed Bloc Party as well.

    General CommentThis live a few years back was a very special sound for my ears. I love the version of this on the Government Commisions LP.
