A live favorite, this song was released in 1990 on Suck On This
, which was Primus' first album - a collection of their live performances. In 1991, they recorded a studio version with Tom Waits on vocals that appeared on their album Sailing the Seas of Cheese
Waits would later gain widespread acclaim, but at the time he was a relatively obscure artist. Les Claypool of Primus was a big fan from the jump. He told Songfacts
: "When I first started talking about Tom Waits to friends of mine, they all thought I was nuts, because they thought I was saying John Waite. I'm like, 'Yeah, let's listen to some Tom Waits.' They're like, 'What the hell are you talking about?' So it's pretty amazing to see his evolution just as far as his status in the world of music."
