Hi Emily,

This song you mention below is definitely not by The Raincoats - we don't
know how it came to be credited to The Raincoats, but it's nothing we
recognise lyrically or otherwise.

The only covers they ever did, apart from "Lola" and "Running Away" have
been the occasional live performance of Dixie Cup's 'Chapel of Love" or
ATV's "Love lies Limp".

All the best,
Shirley
