Mix a cup of industrial synth, with another cup of funky wah guitar, a 1/2 cup of Pink Floyd type Moog synth, 1/4 cup of trashed/distorted drums, and a heavy dollop of an uplifting groovy, R&B, Tony Levin (of Peter Gabriel) type bass line... let simmer.

Album Notes
All instruments performed, recorded, mixed, mastered by Jeff Miller.

"I believe this was written in the late '90's. Probably shortly after I got a new wah pedal for my guitar... trying out the new 'toy'. It was another potential Simon Apple song that never came to full fruition. I don't believe there was ever a lyric or vocal melody on this one - I think it's always remained in this instrumental state. I've often written many band oriented songs starting with a drum groove or a bass line... I'm sure this was likely written with that bass line as a starting point. This was probably one of the first songs I started to trash things up or "lo-fi" things - like the keyboard intro and some of the drums. The slowed down coda at the end was just an experiment... not sure it really adds to the song, but I kinda like it, so it stayed! This was re-recorded & mixed in late October, 2010. I kept most of the original tracks and recorded a new guitar solo.
