World of Gutters track-by-track guide: (4) Said and Unsaid

Said and Unsaid by Ornaith O'Dowd
This song that dates back to when I had a band in college; this was one of the songs I most enjoyed playing live. Its first performance was probably around 1997. I finally got round to recording it a couple of years ago, and now it has a place on an album. It's all about the bassline, I think; I must have just discovered Gang of Four or some of those funkier Andy Rourke lines from the Smiths... At the time, those sorts of influences were not as popular as they are today, so I consider "Said and Unsaid" to be ahead of its time in being behind its own times.
