Hi there... Thanks for giving me a birthday 'shout out' on your page. I totally did not expect to see that while browsing through the site. Ok, a question comes to mind that I have always wondered about. On "Two Days in February", John gives out a dedication and it's mentioned what take of the song it is. I wanted to know if the song was really performed on the street like it sounds or if all of that (like the car sounds) were special effects done in the studio?
All right. . . . 2 days in february. . . off of our second album entitled Jed. . . . was indeed recorded on the street. . . in 1988. . . on the front steps of trackmaster studios, in buffalo n.y. . . to an audience of the guy who owns the tattoed belly on the inside of A boy named goo, his 8 foot long snake, a friend of ours taking video. . . and armand petri producing from the upstairs studio. . . . it took us 22 takes to get a version that we liked. . . that took us well into the evening. . . so a guy across the street in the apartment building called the police on us for making too much damn noise too damn late. . . . so. . .that's why you hear us say . . This is dedicated to chief doug and the guy across the street, take 22 and call me in the morning. . . . .oh. . . and chief doug. . . he held up traffic for hours between san francisco and l.a in 87.. . . long story . . . .and there you go. . . thanks kara!
