The title came from a line in THE APES OF GOD By Wyndham Lewis. It just jumped out at me. His writing was like that. He was also a painter, a great favourite of Captain Beefhearts.
It's a song about how I feel I might distractedly, half engage with people. Sorry about that.
The language of the song is playful. It's not at all a narrative thing. It's all in the present, the drifting chorus which kicks in pretty quickly and stays in the groove. The chords continually rising and the drums swinging hard on the ride cymbal.
I played acoustic , electric , bass guitars and keys. Clare Moore played the drums.
Stu Thomas played the trumpet and sang some amazing backing vocals, along with Emily Jarrett and Will Hindmarsh who appear courtesy of Go Go Sapien.
We are playing a rare show in Melbourne for 2016 at Bennetts Lane Sunday Oct 23rd.
