This song developed as it went, and gathered meaning in its abstract nature like a snowball rolling downhill. At an epic length of almost six minutes it was our longest track, it kept growing organically until some kind of bizarre feedback-drenched guitar solo came out the other end.
On a bit of a whim, Lee Armstrong and I ended up making a hip hop album in 2002. I had been playing around with making some beats in Reason, but didn’t have much of a direction. We decided to use the equipment and beats that were sitting around to some good use. We recorded over the course of a week, gradually refining our ideas until they coalesced around six tracks.
In the end, we also put together two videos, both of which had their debut in the Hello! Video show I was curating at the time.
Very insistent that we would see each other again. No room for debate or discussion there. Wasn’t in the mood to write a ton of lyrics, it is a song of economy.
