"No Two Ways" as written by Chris Carter, Peter Martin Christopherson, Genesis P-orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti....
I don't know if anybody's noticed yet but, uh, you'll notice that for the next hour I'll play one string. I don't know why they build these with four.

London radio news at five - Gary Gillmore is dead. Executed according to his wishes by a five man firing squad in Utah. Gary Gilmore has been fighting to die since being sentenced to death for the murder of a hotel clerk last summer. The firing squad was made up of volunteers; one of the men had a dummy bullet. They carried out the execution 13 minutes after sunrise....

    General CommentNo Two Ways was only recorded twice - once as an instrumental on IRC3 (and in a much better version I think), and the more bass-heavy version here, as indicated by Gen's comment.

    As for the report on Gary Gilmore, as Gen said in COUM, there actually was no dummy bullet - the sandbags behind Gary's body were found with 5 bullet holes, as to not take any risk with executing him. Part of the reason why he posed with Monte and Cosey tied up and blindfolded with actual loaded guns pointed at them for a COUM mail art piece called the Gary Gilmore Remembrance Society.
