This song was recorded around the holidays in 2006, I think – actually that’s the date the file was last modified. Could be earlier than that.
Anyhow, it’s very much inspired by Matt Barber’s ‘The Beautiful Things That We Waste' stealing the image of the the red and green lights on Princess Street in Kingston. It was recorded by me and my friend Niall Fynes on a digital eight track on loan to us from Steve Pitkin, and features such instrumentation as the microwave bell (one of those old ones with a turning dial for the timer) and a bunch of tiny jingle bells strung on a grotty piece of wire. Sophisticated!
I think those are my chubby fingers playing bass, and any decent guitar work is Niall’s, the rest is mine.
