FROM THE ALBUM: Cool
"Previously recorded for
a Peel session with a guitar-oriented arrangement and Glenn on lead vocal
instead of Chris" (6 of 1).
From the Excess Moderation
sleevenotes. Glenn: Second only to 'The new Lennon & McCartney',
one phrase that has dogged us throughout our career has been 'Kitchen Sink
Drama'. "The Knack" is not one of those. Chris: Damon Runyan stories
inspired this song. Playing the number live at the Ha Ra Club in New York
was a big moment for me. Glenn fingered the minimoog off to one side as
Gilson pounded on the drums, and Bentley plucked away on the bass with
all the poise of Basil Brush.
