Songfacts®:

  • The final four songs on In the Belly of the Brazen Bull are joined together into a 12 minute four-track "suite," recorded by the band themselves at Abbey Road in London. Vocalist Gary Jarman told NME: "It might sound proggy but it's not proggy at all. It's something we've wanted to explore - combining songs we've had floating about for a while."
  • This is the first of the quartet. Guitarist Ryan Jarman explained to NME: "It sounds quite freeform. The first song is kind of 'playground', although I know that sounds ridiculous. There's lots of discordance."
