        i waited to bought this record for a long time... almost 20 years from release
        and found in a record store where it should be really! ICELAND
        the most beautiful place of the world, where this music makes complete sense!

          Even 17 years later the Luke Chable's Vocal Pass version makes me goosebumps... A timeless classic!

                You pick up this working girl,
                who's hooked on smack,
                who hustles and scores.
                "That's all I do," she says.

                She says, "ten bucks for head, fifteen for half and half."
                She says, "three hits a day at thirty-five per."
                You say, "that's seven tricks a day at least."
                "But," she says, "sometimes I get lucky."
                "Once this guy gives me a bill and a half just to eat me.
                Only time I ever came."

                You figure you can save her.

                You sell your color TV.
                That keeps her off the streets a whole day.
                You hock your typewriter for one jolt.
                Then your shotgun, your watch.

                A week later, you say, "listen, I'm a little short."
                But she says, "no scratch, no snatch."
                You say, "look, it is better to give."
                "But," she says, "beat off, creep."

                One night they spot you on the street in your skivvies,
                trying to sell your shoes.
                You tell them who you are,
                but they nail you.

                Then she happens by,
                and she says, "Christ, you look fucked."
                She says, "hang tough."

                But you don't say anything.
                You just think, what a bum rap for a nice, sensitive guy like me.

                  The lyrics are by John Harris, taken from "The Gospel According to John." I describe where the lyrics come from at http://www.darrenabramson.com/?p=6

                      This could well be one of the greatest remixes ever. Luke Chable turned this song into a progressive masterpiece. The B-Side is reason enough to buy this vinyl. The meaning of the absurd ironically lyrics has been widely discussed, but that's the meaning, they are not ment to be understood in only one way - you gotta check it out yourself. Could be the greatest lyrics ever written for a song, next to Underworld's Born Slippy.

                      "No Scratch, No Snatch"
                      Haunting lyrics, beautiful breaks, mindblowing music.. 5/5

                        A superb piece of music. I have heard it on several mix albums and also played at several club nights and I never tire of hearing it. The monologue flows perfectly in time with the underlying rhythm, and is more than just the bunch of random samples that is so often used in dance music. The story the dude tells is ultra-seedy, but at the same time also has very humane elements to it.

                        "No Scratch, No Snatch".
