This uses the very first drum machine I ever bought, two months before it officially came out in America. This song was created with all the drum programs people had recorded while testing it in the store. I was trying to figure out how this piece of equipment worked, so it's very psychotic sounding. I thought the title was kind of interesting... like a Bob Dylan title that kind of folds in on itself.
