Hooligan's Holiday

Songfacts®:

  • Jennifer Batten: "'Hooligan's Holiday' is a lyric-less conversation between the guitar and the vocal riffs from the singer. It's a sonic experiment starting with samples of the horrible ground buzz I was having in the studio at the time. I decided to just use the noise and make it musical and percussive in the intro rather than just give up until I could get an engineer in to fix it!" >>
