Mr. Watts again. I mean, it's all drums. The arrangement is all to do with the drums. Charlie laid down the beat and I said, Well, if you can keep that up for several minutes, we've got a track. Hey, no problem. And he always makes it look like it isn't.
It used to be called Holetown Prison, and we did that in Barbados near Holetown. That's what we would loosely term a groove song. I like those a lot. We did a whole bunch of those types of songs, but a lot of them didn't get on the record, 'cause it wasn't the right time to use them, really. I like those songs more than our type of ballads.
Mick had this idea of funking it up one night. We didn't sing anything, we just starting playing. Ding, ding - that is the missle knob on the Telecaster, just hangs it at full maximum, so I'm not playing anything on it. I'm just going Ding, ding. I know it's a good sound.
Suck on the Jugular is strange harmonica-playing. It's more like a trumpet piece.
