Some of the material Out of All This Blue
was written in Japan while Mike Scott
courted the Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi, AKA Rokudenashiko. Scott told North Of The Internet
: "'Payo payo chin' is a funny, joking Japanese way of saying 'Good morning, darling.' 'Ohayo' is the proper way of saying good morning. To say 'payo' is a cute way of saying it, and 'chin' is a corruption of 'chan', which means 'deer,' or 'darling,' an affectionate, familiar word. So 'Payo payo chin' is what you roll over in bed and say to your partner, and then she says it back."
