"Getcha Rocks Off" (1979)
The first song we ever wrote, if my memory serves me right. It was a [former guitarist] Pete Willis riff, borrowed from a friend of his who'd half written it. He changed it around a bit, came in and played it, and I started singing words over the top. It just developed into a kind of embryonic idea. And because it was our first, we were loath to change anything — no matter who might suggest we should stick a middle eight in or whatever! We were just a bunch of teenagers messing around, doing what we felt was right. But it did have a vibe about it that was above and beyond what everyone else seemed to be doing. I think there was a good reason we got the deal that hundreds of other bands couldn't seem to get at the time.
