The same Gustav Dore woodcut later ripped off by Skinny Puppy and surely a few wretched death metal bands.
The Only Ones' (see here) third single, "You've Got To Pay" from 1979 is another shot of crystal pure pop, albeit pop from another planet. The song is jaunty and happy in execution but relentlessly bleak in its outlook; the perfect pop paradox (think "You Are My Sunshine" but with heroin instead of moonshine as the drug of forgetting). The B-side, "This Ain’t All (It’s Made Out To Be)", is a solid up-temp rocker,with a big melodic guitar solo in the middle, which was left off of the excellent LP, Even Serpents Shine.
