The Noisy Eater

Album: Wildflower (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features a choir from Kew High School in Melbourne chirping The Beatles' classic track "Come Together." The Avalanches' Robbie Chater told Pitchfork:

    "That one was initially refused and then we ended up finding contacts for both Paul McCartney and Yoko's people through friends of friends. We sent them the track and just wrote a letter explaining our process and what we're all about, and that this is a project from the heart and it's not a money-making exercise and it was a sincere use of the original music. That was a song that we were going to take off the album if the sample didn't come through."
  • The song was inspired by The Beach Boy's ode to eating, "Vegetables."
