This was our most covered song. We had three arrangements, the Chinese (#1), the Avant-Horn-Funk (#2), the Sludge-O-Matic (#3). This is a 4th version – a straight up jam with our pal Eric Erickson starring on guitar. Eric (a.k.a. Tonal Damage) was a crazy talented guy who among other things, played with The Frazz and with Rob Morgan in the New Age Urban Squirrels and the Fishsticks. I met Eric when we worked together at Everybody's Record Company when he was nineteen. He had a used record store for a while (1980) with Howie called Rare Find up on Capitol Hill by the Comet Tavern where we played their grand opening! Eric died long ago. (This is a very brief and incomplete history of Eric.) It’s nice to have this piece of him left.
