  • "This story of 'breaking and buying' features John Turner on drums, and a kinda sleazy Korg synthesizer that seemed cheap but is beloved by Ebay people now." - John Flansburgh
  • In the "From The Crypt" section of TMBG Unlimited from the month of July.
  • Flansburgh explained the drums and bass in this song on Tumblr: "Seven Eleven was either from a record of generic drum beats recorded by a fellow named Dave Crigger or a fellow named John Turner who also just put down a beat for us to write too. The bass could be synth or electric bass, me or JL."
