The pulling song was a tribute to recently departed Fingolstone Booga. The charismatic front man had quit the band after Skeggy Market. He said he wanted to go and do some weightlifting?
During his days in the band he had been the star attraction for the ladies and the pulling song was to illustrate his considerable talents as a pull guy. It also had hidden depth, rare for a Fingolstones song, in that it touched upon the burgeoning romance with the woman who was to be his only real true love, Hayley Daykin a.k.a Daykey Poo.
Theirs was a classic love story, boy meets girl, girl falls for boy, boy drinks lots of beer, girl tries to get him to grow up, boy drinks even more beer, they fall out, they make up, they eventually split.
The song also alludes to his burgeoning alcoholism and subtly tells how as the booze took hold he was forced to get more and more drunk before going out pulling, leading to some incredibly disturbing and frightening encounters with Mooses.
The song has lasted the test of time as Booga is now back in the situation he was 30 yrs ago, as the song so prophetically puts it "Loads of girls and beer". Well loads of beer anyway.
Ratted again, Booga makes his move on yet another Moose.
