Touch Me I’m Sick

Well, I’ve been bad, yeah, I’ve been worse
I’m a creep, yeah, I’m a jerk

I won’t live long, and I’m full of rot
Could give you, girl, everything I got

Touch me, I’m sick, yeah
Touch me, I’m sick

Come on baby, now come with me
If you don’t come
If you don’t come
If you don’t come
You’ll die alone

Yeah I’m diseased, and I don’t mind
I’ll make you love me till the day you die

Touch me, I’m sick
Fuck me, I’m sick

Come on baby, now come with me
If you don’t come
If you don’t come
If you don’t come
You’ll die alone

Song Notes

“Touch Me I’m Sick” was Mudhoney’s debut single back in 1988. Ash have played it live a few times, including at an infamous performance at the Lost Weekened festival in 2000, when Tim dedicated it to the Nine Inch Nails drummer who pulled out at last minute due to ill health. It was Ash’s intro tape at live gigs around the Nu-Clear Sounds period.

Ash played the track as part of the supergroup W.A.S.H, which featured Ash and We Are Scientists performing a set of covers in 2012. Ash most recently played the song live on 21st August 2017 with with their friends Asylums at Chinnerys in Southend.
