Behind the Music #05 - Good Afternoon

Written by Aidy.

Another song that’s existed for a while and possibly the only song on the album that we’ve yet to play live. I wrote the lyrics nearly a decade ago and I think they had something to do with getting a haircut from God. Pretty random but it came about after seeing the last episode of Quantum Leap in which God was a friendly bartender dishing out pearls of wisdom to Dr Sam Beckett and I thought it might have also been quite cool if he’d been a hairdresser. Anyway!

I dug up the lyrics and started using them with the chord structure you can hear in this song now and the two went pretty well, but it wasn’t until Paul added his almost disco like drum beat to the equation that it really started to come to life. The idea was to have this song as a slightly experimental “pallet cleanser” that divided the two halves of the album that faded in and faded out before kicking into Cannibal.
