My daughter recently FaceTimed me to provide a guided tour of her beautiful but very small new apartment. The idea for this song came to me as we were talking. The boys in the band happened to be round for our weekly scrabble tournament, so we sat down in my living room and recorded this.
As for the scrabble tournament, it was won by our Afghan drummer, Kit Bashir. As he he doesn’t speak any English, every few weeks we play in his native language with the aid of a Pashtun-English dictionary. Strangely, this wasn’t one of those weeks.
