SONG OF THE WEEK #50: The Pastels - "Ditch The Fool"

I've so many times mentioned these lovely c-86 Glaswegians on these here pages that it's probably time to include their song on this Song of the Week list. Number 50 will do nicely. 
The Pastels have often been labelled/dismissed as twee, but that would be oversimplifying it. They were many other things, too. "Ditch The Fool" is their classic noise-pop epic off 1989's Sittin' Pretty. Featuring all that unmistakable teenage anguish and desperation, the song is both intense and strangely enigmatic.
