Delta : Could You

A beautifully intimate and insidious song about getting, as they would say, [I]"your leg over"[/I]...

When James and Patrick Roberts from Delta were in bands in the Eighties, they used to take delight in mercilessly heckling one-hit-wonder girl group Strawberry Switchblade. Fact: one of Strawberry Switchblade later became a prominent priestess in the Church of Satan. Could the two events be connected? And does this - brr! - have anything to do with the fact that Delta spent the next ten years being the unluckiest band in Britain? Hopefully, they've broken the voodoo with their comeback single, a beautifully intimate and insidious song about getting, as they would say, "your leg over".
