‘Old Siam, Sir’ was the lead single from Wings’ final album Back To The Egg in the UK. See more…

The rather fancy-sounding Spirit of Ranachan studio was basically a barn with a control room window at one end of it. Wackiness was the order of the day during this period – garish outfits and the punk and disco era – and they don’t come much wackier than ‘Old Siam, Sir’. If I had to rate the elements of it, I think the lyric would come third to the feel of the song and then the attack of the vocal. I’m doing a bit of alliteration here, playing around with the words – ‘waited’ and ‘Walthamstow’, ‘scouted’ and ‘Scarborough’. I think the reason I’m ever so slightly embarrassed by it is that it doesn’t really make much sense.
