Author Notes

Mac DeMarco at it’s finest in one of his biggest classics. An epic, memorable guitar riff, great fun on all instruments, and Mac apologizing to his mother about being a naughty boy – this particular song was written after Mac’s mother found online a video of him sticking up drumsticks up his, well, backside. Here’s Mac himself explaining this song:
 
“That’s about the family. A lot of songs are about the family on the album. I did a karaoke set in Montreal last spring, and I ended up getting really, really drunk. All my clothes came off, beer got poured over me, percussive instrument tools found their way into my butt and my friend took a video of the thing. I thought it’d be funny, but it goes on YouTube and my aunt sees it, and my whole family. And they were not too pleased. My mom was like, “Mac—what’s going on?” My aunt freaked out and thought I was smoking bath salts. I didn’t present some song to say, look, I’m sorry… it was all clear before. They understand that I’m just a bit of a goof. But I thought it’d be a fun thing to write a song about, so I did." So, hmm, yeah, thankfully we got a great song from this!
