Ok first things first, F@#* bombs are flying in this song.  So no sweet little faint of hearts need bother listening to this one.

Tamara and I had a lot of fun recording this one.  It really benefits from Tamara’s driving slow groove, which is coming along quite nicely I must say.  This was the most cohesive Radiohead number I could think of to duet on.

I recall hearing this song and getting all ecstatic because they had that Smiths vibe, and they arrived on the scene pretty much side by side with Suede and Gene.  Together they were the next wave of Smiths-esque bands that filled a gaping chest wound that grunge had plunged into my heart.  Up to this point I had been stanching the blood with 4A.D. bands like the Cocteau Twins, so this was like coming home.  It is edgier though and Yorke is oh so much toothier than Morrissey.  Still this song is a touchstone for sure.

Let’s see… I like the guitar sound I worked out.  I cranked up the gain and did a bunch of little junky harmonics which remind me of my Atari 2600.  I like Tamara’s determined oomph in the lower register… could care less about my vocals, and if I were truly invested I would have worked out a drum part.  It was a fun time to put together though.  Cheers to the lads from Oxford, and cheers to all the other Creeps out there!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
