the idea: one mic in middle of the room. five people managing to make up songs of different varieties from scratch with no preparations prior to the event. The intro features carly lappin singing kid cudi backwards. the heat was lyrically inspired by actual events. (we really did see two people in capes walking by a furniture store). Sakajaweeuh Cheetah was written never spoken about. just three takes and that's what happened. hot tub hot pants tells a funky sexy story of James Brown luring girls to a hot tub with fresh hot donuts & then having a serialism mental breakdown. only to be saved by his lovely ladies. our way of saying thanks for listening. kid cudi died in a coma was the first song written off the cuff both musically and lyrically. the flute is purposefully out of tune. we discovered that having everying tuned 1/4 of a step down and having a flute in a natural tuning created, first a pain or sensation in the face which then ran down into the stomach. so we left it in. hope you can stomach it. cheesburger cosmos was a live take. there is footage to prove it. this song was the result of having the title "who needs a kitchen? i've got scotch & soda" with no song. Going to heaven was recorded over two nights. the first night the record button was hit at 3 am. the second night the vocals and words were put down at 4 am. to get that drunken barroom feeling. also dusty wanted a song about a levee. the words were written during vocal takes. the basic music i.e. guitar/drums were recorded live.

The Heat (the kid can't take it)

ejaculator, ejaculate her!

Going To Heaven (legless)
i'm going to heaven
don't wait for me
i lost my legs at the levee
when it was breaking down
but soon enough i'll be up there
walking on holy ground
i'm going to heaven
don't wait for me
i lost my baby to a cabbie
down on highway 51
but i won't go back down there
i'm walking up golden stairs
to the city of the sun.

i'm going to heaven now. i won't see you for a little while.
but remember when you're on this earth, you gotta let one go once in a while. and if you spend a nickle on a camel well you always get your money's worth. don't worry about your daughters, they all know how to cash a check.
