  • Guitarist Nick McCabe explained this song in an interview with BBC DJ Steve Lamacq: "That was a few different segments that sort of, at some point I decided they all worked together really and I was pretty insistent on it being this like Frankenstein thing of different chunks stuck together. The first section of it was as it is really. It got condensed into certain sections getting chopped out. It was one of those things that the more we listened to it the more we enjoyed it really, like me and Si we used to spend like evenings just enjoying getting our heads ripped off by it as well."

    Bassist Simon Jones added: "I mean, the jam itself was probably about an hour long that we took that from and just chose all the best bits but it's got a real psych edge to it as well. It's really, I mean, I love that track."
