- Dong Work For Yuda was inspired by translation problems between John Smothers and a Danish cab driver. Smothers wanted to be taken to the Falkoner Center, but the cab driver didn't understand his request: "Falcum. Take me to the Falcum."
"'Disco Boy' came about because we were in Denmark and we went to the place there called The Disc Club, and it was really poot. It was so make-believe sophisticated that it was embarassing. The place was decorated like a playboy-type living room would sorta be like - lowboy chairs and snackettes on the table, and everybody drinks and dances to these robots beat records, which I happen to like you know. I'm very fond of monotony. I think it's an integral part of contemporary civilisation and once you adapt to it you're better in phase with reality. I think that it's probably one of the funnier commentaries on the disco syndrome"
