We Were Wasted

Album: The Sleeper (2009)


  • This story of a drunken late night taxi ride home is a track from British folk rock group The Leisure Society's debut album, The Sleeper. Frontman Nick Hemming admitted to Mojo magazine October 2009: "A lot of the songs were written in a hung-over state. A lot of debauchery has gone on, but I'm trying to calm that down now."
