DOWNLOAD: Pela - Good Foot on a Bad Doorstep (new MP3) (via)
The song is about good old fashion infidelity and it folding back on the infidel. It was originally on banjo and didn't make Anytown [Graffiti]. But we knew we'd release it some day. It was recorded on a cheap Kimball organ... like the kind that Hare Krishna's use. The violin player was this old Cuban guy that hung at my bar. And he was so drunk during the session that his breathing was bleeding through the microphone... we thought he'd pass out but he never did... he just sat there smelling of alcohol and cologne. [Pela's Billy McCarthy to KEXP]
