if memory serves, this is the first song john brought in when we started working on the CHALKY project. he was moving to austin tx, but we had unfinished business regarding our shared love of raggedy powerpop. we recorded in different rooms [including the bathroom] of my house, endured the heat and had a genuinely inspired and wonderful time. this one is mostly his tune, still love it and every song on the record.
