Trivia/Info

  • From the tmbg.com FAQ archive: "Spider is the product of an idle afternoon messing with the sampler. Linnell did the voices, except for "must...stop!" which Flans added along with the cocktail bongos, horns and sound effects."
  • The repeating "Spider!" line is very reminiscent of the song "Boris the Spider" by The Who.
