One of the shortest songs on the album. This song has a more basic song structure (verse, chorus, verse, chorus) which isn't found in many Mars Volta songs; at least not on this album.
What's interesting to note about this song is the very ending drum solo. Although this custom version has the drum track playing forward, on the final recording the drum solo is actually reversed. However cool it is to listen to (and it is), I didn't find it worked that well for rock band, so I opted to use the "demo version" drum solo. The demo and the final master are identical is every way with the exception of some panning of the guitars and keys. The demo is also unmastered, so you get the full dynamic range of the song (something I complained about in the write-up for "Roulette Dares"), I'm sorry to go on about this for two write-ups, but it really bothers me!
This is an upgrade from sideshows customs. A while ago I spoke to him about updating various Mars Volta Tracks. All credits for the original drum-only custom go to sideshow and ItalianStal1ion. I added guitar, bass, and vox, and made some minor changes to the drum part.
- Added venue
- Broken guitar chord fixed [fourth RYB note in the intro]
