(c) 1992 by Kirk Madison and Lewis D'Aubin
By 1992, my sole bandmate Kirk was in college at U.T. of Austin and not available for practice very often, so naturally we relished every opportunity we could get to jam! Late that fall, Kirk was in town and we collaborated on this. I wanted to write something heavy, something about a fearsome metal beast like on the old Judas Priest album covers. At the time, my family had a large grey lop-eared bunny rabbit that would lounge around the yard and generally try to emulate our dachshund. So that (and Monty Python's 'Holy Grail') became the basis for these lyrics.
I programmed the beat and synth sounds on my faithful old Ensoniq ESQ-1, driving my modified Roland TR-505 drum machine. Kirk performed the song on his Flying 'K' guitar through his Rockman, then quickly departed for Austin, leaving me to finish the song later that week. Bass was originally provided by synthesizer, until my friend Keith Casebonne, who would later become the first guitarist in the stage version of C.O.G., introduced me to his friend, a multi-instrumentalist named Brad Schayot. Brad stopped by my house and played a complex slap part on this otherwise simple metal (?) song.
When it came time to do the vocals, I was nervous... I had never sung before, so I decided to doubletrack my vocals. Not one to make things easy on myself, I decided to track one vocal in a low, gravelly register, and the other vocal two octaves up. The result sounds quite horribly stupid, exactly the sound I sought!
