Movers and Shakers is actually one of the only tracks I actually LOVE off CTC.

Yes. I love it. I just wish there was a live version floating about.

They did it on the busking tour but the Matedizzle deems those versions inferior.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

The saddest bits on CTC - me masturbating during Cool Under Heat.
I'm giving you a warning -- I'm gonna burn those blue suede shoes. Swagger in the morning, we're gonna make some front page news!

CHORUS!

BE COOL UNDER HEAT!
punk fantasy-la-and
BE COOL UNDER HEAT!
these lyrics are rather underwh-elming!
BE COOL OUT ON THAT STREET!
like I said before
BE COOL UNDER HEAT!
my sha-rona!

That made me laugh!

I think it's the only song on the album Paul plays on, so that's something. And plus you have that top flight groove-crew known as the Fayne-Strummer Axis. If that doesn't spell "swing" then I'm an oryx.

There's a fun little slap bass double hit going into the first chorus after the "concreeeeete" line that I can't help but air bass every time.

Yeesh. Was I drunk when I wrote this? I’m worried I wasn’t.

This was around the peak of your "shock" period, wasn't it?

Yeah. I mean reading it now, I still find it funny but not something that even would come to mind to post. Maybe I’m more mature or maybe I’m more lame. Probably both.

Well, you're a father now. You probably don't even have the energy to masturbate.

Actually wait, I was going off about Doc jerking it to his vibrating CD player the other day so maybe I haven’t fallen off that much. :cool:

Also Kory, was I right that this is slap bass? Does it sound like a real NWR part?
