  1. Sleazy

    "Sleazy" is a song by Sydney band Expatriate. A demo version was featured as a B-side on the band's first single "Get Out, Give In" which was only sold at early live shows, and which is long out of print. The song was, at one stage, available as a free download on the band's website, however the link has long since been removed. A fully mastered studio version was recorded with John Goodmanson during the sessions for Expatriate's debut album In the Midst of This however that version has not been released to date. Live performances of "Sleazy" ceased once In the Midst of This was released.
