Mad Dog (Frischmann/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the album version. Other versions: John Peel, awayTEAM mix, Ashley Beedle mix, Ashley Beedle dub mix.

Justine: "The dog's from one of those little kid's keyboards. I was trying to learn how to use Cubase (a sequencing programme). Dave Bush, our programmer and keyboard player, set me up and let me run on the Cubase and I spent a day doing it and 'Mad Dog' is what I came up with, the drum beat and the dog noises and stuff. So that's kind of like my first go at programming. I just liked the idea of the album starting with the sound of dogs barking - it seemed appropriate. It's quite a positive song, it was the first thing the band in this form worked on together. It's about picking yourself up and getting on with it."
