Trivia/Info

We wrote this song while Adam was tinkering with Yeh Yeh in the other room. Jim O'Connor, who owns and operates a flugelhorn, expressed some feelings he has been keeping in the freezer since 1966. Danny Weinkauf made everybody burst into tears with his bass playing, and that's Clem "Wildman" Waldman pounding the skins and triangle. Clem is part of the Loser's Lounge, a New York revue at the Westbeth Theater.
We write pretty independently, and we've had a number of tracks in the recent past where we've collaborated. There's one shining exception, which is the song "Mink Car" off of [the album] Mink Car we actually wrote sitting at a piano in this Leopold and Loeb sort of way. We don't really ever do that.
