Mugshot Heroin

Songfacts®:

  • Moonshake, which existed between 1991 and 1997, has been called an experimental band; it was certainly that.

    David Callahan was the main man; in 2012 he was staff writer for Birdwatch magazine, but back in his recording days he told another magazine, between the lies, (no 5, undated) that "Mugshot Heroin" is "completely not misunderstandable, the songs [on the album] have strong meanings and every word is intended to mean something". People who actually listen to it may beg to differ. >>
