A Fistful Of Peanuts (Version)

This track is a reworking of Clint Eastwood that appeared on Laika Come Home. The title is a play on the fact that Clint Eastwood the movie star, starred in a film called 'A Fistful Of Dollars' (the peanuts part no doubt being added because of the Spacemonkeyz reference). The 'version' of A Fistful Of Peanuts' is a slightly remixed version of the original 'A Fistful Of Peanuts'.
