1990 - "Fergus and I were fooling around with that song before the tour started. Of course we had to work out how we were going to do these songs in a trio format, what, what we could do with the Stick and the guitar to make it work, and maybe the poet was a song that I wanted to do but the original version of it didn't work and so what were we going to do with it and we were sitting around trying this and trying that and I forget which one of us came up with the idea of trying a certain ska version of it but, um, actually I think it was both of us because Fergus started playing a rhythm on the Stick and then that suggested the ska rhythm on the guitar and I tried singing the song over top of that and it worked, so all of a sudden we had a whole new version of that song." - from "Interview and Segments" a CD released in 1990 by True North/Epic.
