In November of 2009 I had somehow gotten it into my head to record a kid's music CD for BAD kids, including gems like 'Eat Rocks' and 'Play With Broken Glass'. This song is so far the only thing that got finished, but it's at least worthy. Another Devo sounding robo groove, this song came into being fairly quickly but was not really fleshed out till early 2010. By the time I showed it off to the band in the form of a synth demo, it was pretty complete.
Naturally I wasn't happy with all those synthesizers, and Ed set about dressing it up with some great 80's sounding guitars, using The Cure, Flock of Seagulls, and The Fixx as role models. A couple months later, he came up with additional harmony and background guitar parts that make for really interesting headphone listening. The bass guitar was a bit more difficult; Jim never did get the exact groove I was vying for, and I ended up using the technique of cutting apart every note in the bass track and arranging them by hand. Tiffany added the icing to this musical cake by singing the bridge, replacing my part. And voila!
The onstage video parts to this song were animated from a cool book called 'How To Be a Supervillain'... inspiration for sure!
