Jon: Slower for sure.
Chris: Yeah, sounds slower, but otherwise, God damn close to the LP.
Jon: Cleaner than the demo I think though? But similar.
Chris: Yeah. Def cleaner. A good midway point between the demo and the final cut.
Jon: Did I ever mention the story of Mick clearing the cover?
Chris: No, I don’t know the story.
Jon: I guess the record execs or whoever played it and he got up and danced around to it excitedly. I forget what he said but it was a cute story / worth googlin’.
Chris: Haha oh man! I’ll have to check that out.
Jon: I feel like the bloopy synth counterpoint lines in this are more muted. They’re shriller/more up front in the LP/demo. IIRC.
Jon: Although now I wish I had notes in front of me, haha.
Chris: They’re higher and more ethereal.
Jon: The baby baby baby’s aren’t as challenging at this speed. Also. Haha.
Chris: 😆 yeah. Speeeed that shit up! But man, overall this is so damn close.
Jon: Right? This is like a dry run for the debut LP.
Chris: They put an echo on the vocals near the end.
Jon: True. Also I think it’s supposed to segue right into Be Stiff. I forgot that part. A nice touch IMO.
Chris: Yeah, it goes right in.
