Some debut singles are a shot across the bow, and this one from Everclear‘s 1995 major-label debut Sparkle and Fade is exactly that – it goes from zero to ‘punch in the throat’ in the first 10 seconds and does not let up. This song has been on my to-do wish list forever (despite the near-impossible task of singing while playing that devastating riff), so I decided to give it a shot. After a couple of attempts that fell short, I asked Scott Bittner if he wanted to contribute a guitar track. Having a slightly different feel for the second rhythm guitar made all the difference in the world.
