Red Wine Teeth (3:45)

Cover of Instant Coffee Baby

From Instant Coffee Baby

David Tattersall: “A straight-forward break-up/alcoholism/blow job story in waltz time. I play piano on this, which was fun. The first chord sequence I had for these lyrics was actually laughed at by Franic and Jonny, so I had to go away and find a different one. It’s a good example of the band saving the day. I would be totally rubbish without the two of them. Still, I was very indignant and pissed off at the time. I enjoy singing the names of all the games. Everybody knows sardines and charades, but I should explain that sleeping bag is a game I used to play as a child. It was like blind man’s bluff, except instead of just wearing a blindfold you had to climb head first into a sleeping bag and then stumble around in that trying to grab your friends. Unsurprisingly, it really stinks of feet in the feet end of a sleeping bag. This is The Wave Pictures attempt at a country song in the style of Townes Van Zandt, but Jonny’s high harmony vocal makes the whole thing sound rather more like ‘Back for Good’ by Take That.”
