I knew that it was made back to back with 12GCG but I hadn't realised how much overlap the making of the two albums had.
Neat to see an explanation about why "Cold Blows The Wind" has such a different melody from the other versions of it I've heard.
I can't imagine "Waving My Dick In The Wind" on 12GCG. But I guess if it was performed by the country band it would have worked.
Claypool and Deaner hanging out and jamming is fun to see.
"I was 26 years old at the time" Christ, I'm 26. *kills myself*
Dean fixates on the negative reviews which isn't surprising, of course those would stand out the most. But Pitchfork of all sites gave it a 9.7, and that was only like a week after OK Computer came out, so you'd think they would have been too distracted by that to drop any other ultra-high scores.
I knew Storm Thorgerson did the artwork but I had no idea he liked the record so much that he would amend his contract for it. That's pretty awesome. Also amusing to read that he outsourced a lot of his late-era artwork. That certainly explains a lot about the quality of much of those later album covers he did.
I thought Dancing In The Show's vocals were all Gene manipulated. It explains a lot that it's actually different singers all blended together.
