Guitar Was The Case
From This Might Be A Wiki
|song name||Guitar Was the Case|
|releases||Unsupervised, TMBG Clock Radio|
|first played||June 27, 1996 (13 known performances)|
- The title is a reference to the Snoop Dogg song "Murder Was the Case".
- Flansburgh says, "Originally written as a ska song for a TV program and later rejected by finicky producers, this track takes some of its melodic inspiration from 'Hall Of Heads' off of TMBGs Apollo 18 album, and a lot of its vibe from the recordings of the Ventures and Dick Dale. It's essentially a surf guitar duel between me (on the right speaker) and Mr. Mike Viola of the Candy Butchers (on the left speaker.) It also introduces the awesome boogie-power of the rhythm section: Mr. Hal Cragin (Iggy Pop) and Mr. Steve Calhoon (Skeleton Key)."
