Sounds like EMG-era strings in Dylan & Caitlin I thought. Very nice.
What a mess

I love this track a lot, but I find it interesting/amusing just how few words in the lyrics to Dylan & Caitlin have never been used in a Manics song before (as far as I can tell). You could pretty much reconstruct almost the entire song from other lyrics with a small handful of exceptions (if I had the time I might bother giving it a go with audio clips lol). I guess that kind of thing becomes more and more likely the more songs you have though (has it happened before to this degree?), but it seems peculiarly apt given the content of the song relating to words, poetry, etc.
