We did this track called P.S.O.K. that is Paul Stanley Of KISS, that is basically a music collage, you know like of this very propulsive drumbeat with Paul Stanley reciting the same raps. There's this bootleg CD that's on the web that's going around, it's like a really big download. And it's this crazy document of sixty or seventy different shows and over the course of all these different show excerpts, he repeats all the things over and over again. Like, 'I don't think we played this the last time we were here!' And then you hear the next show and he's like 'We didn't play this one the last time we were here!'
  • "People, Let Me Get This Off My Chest" is the name of the bootleg KISS CD referenced by Flansburgh.
