Story Behind The Song: Michael, Kenny and I had planned to work one weekend. We didn’t have a song, but that didn’t matter. We never got together for work when we didn’t create something. But a complication developed. Kenny was playing with Dag, and I suspect they had a gig. So this is what we did. We asked Kenny to come in before he left town and to lay down a drum track. No music, just a drum track. He’d lay it down and we’d write a song to it. I’d never heard of that. So that’s what we did.
Michael picked up his guitar. We’d run the track and he’d play. When we got the rudiments of something, we’d run the track and ad lib the vocals. Then we edited the tracks, like a film, to form the song. The need to create a song took us back to our Beatles’ influences, this one a kind of B-side track heavy on the vibe and less linear than traditional pop songs. It captures a feeling, I think, one of melancholy and lost innocence—if ever there were such a thing. – – Phillip Gardner
