This song was an attempt by Kirk and I to record the gayest sounding Euro techno disco song EVER. I programmed this on the ESQ-1, driving the Roland TR-505, which was heavily processed through EQ and various reverbs. The keyboard solo was performed at 75% speed on the black keys, and improv'd completely on the first take. Best solo I ever wrote. The word 'dance' was sampled with distortion from Kirk's Rockman into the ART Multiverb one-shot sampler, and put down to tape on a separate track.
While recording this, we decided that Kirk had a better grasp of the required vocal tone (and he was a better singer than me at this point), so I set up a mic and he tried recording. Unfortunately, the lines we were coming up with were so ridiculous that we kept cracking each other up. The only solution was for Kirk to ensconse himself in the closet with the mic and the remote for the tape machine. I left the room and came back in an hour - the result was perfect.
We spent the rest of the evening making up ridiculous background lines that are heard between the verses. By the time we got to "Are you an American?" we couldn't stop laughing, but fortunately, it was also the end of the song.
