A wordy attempt to trace the course of a lovers' quarrel, this high-romantic epic started out with the Chapman-Torraca Fashion Jungle in an arrangement that was much too elaborate. Once we reformed the FJ with bassist Dan Knight, I reset "Passion" to a straight beat with the guitar riff heard here. But this version is yet a further evolution, developed with the Boarders under the influence of Three Mustaphas Three. It features Jonathan Nichols-Pethick playing what we called the "camel beat" and my guitar solo paying homage to Middle Eastern pop radio. An over-processed rehearsal recording from April 1996.
