Well, there's "She's a Yo-yo" which has a line something like `she
was on drugs now she's on the blink' (my memory is playing tricks
with me at the moment so I can't swear to that one). Don't know if
just referring to a previous song counts. If it does then
"Excellent!" must surely take the prize for referring to about half
of Cult of the Basement somewhere in the lyrics. Well, that's an
exaggeration but it is sorta self-referential.

It's not a butch song but you've probably heard it anyway so I
suppose it's worth mentioning and that's "Angel" by our buddy Sonic
Boom which contains the `what could I do but care' line from Susie
but repeats it EVEN MORE OFTEN.

That's all the news from Scotland.
