Does anyone know this song?

Not strictly Pulp, but Pulp adjacent. 

My mother gave me a book of cds I made in high school, so I was playing one a few years ago and it had two songs by a band I couldn't place. I really loved the songs so searched everywhere for this band. Shazam, clips to instagram, asking everyone in bars. For three years this saga went on. Then last night I was reading Russel's autobiography and he mentioned a half dozen bands he considered superior to Pulp prior to him joining. One of the bands: Artery. I remembered having some kind of compilation that I pulled the songs from one midnight twenty years ago. I immediately found one of the songs: "Louise". But the other bloody one doesn't seem to appear on anything. 

Artery fans:

Is there a song called Mother's Ruin or a cover of a song or a Peel Session or a demo or something? It has the line "Do you remember your father, the man with the black moustache, he's a bad cowboy" in it.

Wow, that's an obscurity! Good song too. It's on this compilation:

PS Pulp link - it's co-written by Simon Hinkler, and features him on piano, with brother David on trombone.

YES! Thank you Sturdy, I knew you'd know!

Is this song an original, do you know? That little session was so loose and warm; does So Many People show up again?

Sorry for all the questions but this has absolutely plagued me:)

Yeah it's an original I believe. Part of a set of songs they worked up after touring the One Afternoon In A Hot Air Balloon album, dropped when that version of the band split up and Gouldthorpe decided to go heavy for the Second Coming album instead. A shame really, would have been more to hear a bit more from that line-up before they moved on.

Artery are ace..
So many people/it's Christmas again from that session also appear on the Flight Commander lp 'A Room full of this'
Mother's Ruin appears on the compilation Sturdy already mentioned, another song 'Take' doesn't appear to have surfaced anywhere, It's a magical track..
While there are 3 versions of 'Louise' that i know of, all of them great..

Artery are so good. Is Flight Commander just Simon and Mark and then some bonus tracks? I'm having some trouble navigating the crossbreeding...

Agreed, Louise is good in all forms I've heard:) Is "Take" from that session as well?

Thanks Jason and Sturdy!

Yes, The Flight Commander were predominantly a Simon & Mark project with Simon providing the majority of musicianship & production.
With input from other musicians and backing vocals from Saskia C..
They released 2 albums quite a number of years apart:
Solitude & the Snake (1985)
A Room full of this (1993)
Both worth checking out..
Yes, the song 'Take' was part of the demo session that included So many people/Mother's ruin etc...circa 1983..

Thanks Jason, that's really interesting. Need to hear the Flight Commander LPs at some point.

I'd never heard of Take! Who do I have to blow in order to do so?
