We play this live and it goes down well. The only trouble is the rest of the band always want to speed it up. I am destined to spend my entire life playing in bands who think that if a song isn't "working" it needs to be played faster.
Seriously, our live version of "Band of Gold" ends up sounding like speed metal.
