A Side: A Porky Prime Cut Welcome To Clubland
B Side: Luv Porky Clean Money Clean Sweep ILPS9000 11th Dec 2010 Actually, "Clean Money" is the 'original' song. It was recorded during the "Armed Forces" sessions, and was then recycled later as "Love For Tender" for the "Get Happy!!" album.
It was first released on the "Ten Bloody Marys & Ten How's Your Fathers" (UK) and "Taking Liberties" (NA) compilations in Nov 1980 (a month before the "Clubland" single).
It was also released in its correct chronological place as a bonus track on both the 1993 Demon (UK)/Rykodisc(US) and 2002 Edsel (UK)/Rhino (US) CDs of "Armed Forces".
Oh yeah, and it IS a great tune... MonkeyHanger 10th Dec 2010 "Clean Money" on the B-side of this is a reworking of "Love For Tender", the opening track on "Get Happy". It's pretty much the same lyric but with a different tune which is monumentally brutal, great piece of driving New Wave from the Master.
