Frontman George Craig in the Daily Mail February 1, 2008: "This song was inspired by the Drax power station in Selby (Yorkshire). It's a sea of red lights, and it looks epic at night."
"Just For Tonight" was produced by Steve Lillywhite. His many credits include work with U2, The Rolling Stones, Matchbox Twenty and Talking Heads.
Craig expanded in an interview with the Yorkshire Evening Post October 12, 2007: "That was about a power station. We were recording some demos and there was this power station on the horizon with a load of lights on it – it was the most epic thing you've ever seen. It's not about a power station but it was inspired by these epic lights. "That was the feeling we got for the song, it's a big epic song. We went out for a drive one night from the studio and we sat on this hill looking across at it. After that we wrote that song which is our best song to date."
Hanny from Roden, NetherlandsThis song will remind me forever of the European soccer championchips. Because it was used as a soundtrack underneath the days footage of the games been played that day, in a dutch soccerprogramme.The combination of the music and the movements of the soccerplayers I thought were fantastic!
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
