  • From, "Another fine miniature from the McSweeney's session. This track features both JL and me tracking it up on the Korg "preset" synthesizer- a remarkably sleazy device from the mid-70s that I bought in a pawn shop that kinda simplifies the idea of a monophonic synthesizer into a pretty straightforward ugly sound maker, and with the addition of the guitars, it's a real contender for the most out-of-tune track we've ever recorded."
