Songfacts®:

  • From the linear notes, drummer Abe Cunningham: "This was the last song we recorded for the Around The Fur sessions. At the time, an experiment in sound and texture for us complete with nasty, sloppy hi-hats. The original title came to us while on tour many moons ago. We used to always borrow our friend's truck, it was our touring vessel, complete with camper shell, trailer, a plethora of beer, and many, many full piss bottles. One strange night we pulled over at a liquor store on Crenshaw Boulevard; tired of beer, we all came out with giant jugs of cheap-ass wine, which we soon dubbed 'Crenshaw Punch.'" >>
