Chris: Alright, let’s talk sloppy talk in 3. 2. 1. Go! Faster pace that the EP I think.
Jon: The opening guitar line always reminded me of morse code.
Chris: Obviously way better production.
Jon: Haha yeah.
Chris: Mmmm yeah good call out. That hey hey hey in the background was added.
Jon: I DO appreciate the vocal gymnastics in this song.
Chris: Yeah, I do like that as well, but on the live recording mark didn’t pull it off.
Jon: Huge nuts for trying at all though.
Chris: But yeah this song is fun but more simple. Has the same repeating phrase. Back and forth.
Jon: It feels like a few segments or song-ideas just tacked together. Musically anyway.
Chris: Right yeah. Held together with tape feeling.
Jon: False ending, haha. Slash surprise coda.
Chris: Yeah it’s also super short. Punk length. And tempo, come to think of it.
Jon: Indeed. surprising amount of silence at the end, setting up Shrivel Up too.
Jon: Usually on this LP they’re all about OK NEXT TUNE.
Chris: It doesn’t bother me.
Jon: Yeah. This song feels like an outburst. kinda like Too Much Paranoias. Music as OCD.
Chris: Yeah, that tracks. I think it’s a statement about shrivel up, which is maybe the most different tonally from the rest of the album? It’s this crazy explosion that never fully resolves.
Jon: I also like that it almost implies the “concept” of the album having a boner, and now it’s spent. If we’re gonna be 12yr-olds about it. And we better be.
Chris: Haha. I think that’s the only way to be about it. This boner was sloppily spent. These start-stops are a metaphor about cum spasms.
Jon: Come back jonee was premature ejaculation, sloppy was frustration at this, and shrivel is trying to fall asleep once she’s rolled over in disgust.
Chris: It all tracks. So yeah, maybe less stellar than the other tracks so far, but I’m not mad it’s on the album.
Jon: Yeah, it still beats a lot of other tunes by far.
Chris: That being said, would you replace it with anything from their previous catelog? I’m kinda thinking of Be-stiff.
Jon: Oh probably. Be Stiff or Social Fools, yeah. Surprised those weren’t on the album anyway.
Chris: Yeah, maybe they made a decision about the sequencing and flow?
Jon: I can see that.
Chris: But I think they could have made it work.
Jon: Yeah. If Mongoloid has a place on here.
Chris: Yeah idk. Or at least release them as produced singles.
