KRS founder Slim Moon says, "It is fitting that this second single in this 30th anniversary series is by Mike Watt with Nels Cline and Bob Lee, just as it was fitting that the first single in the series involved Mary Lou Lord. It is another 'slight return' of an artist we had the pleasure of working with a bit back in the '90s. The trio on this single were featured on the 1999 T his Is A Prayer 7 " 3-song single. Watt's trio L'il Pit released a 7" on KRS in 1997, and Dos, Watt's duo with Kira Roessler, dropped their third album, Justamente Tres, on Kill Rock Stars in 1996. To whatever degree I believe in the "great women and men" theory of human history, Mike Watt is one of the towering figures in the history of punk rock - so is Nels Cline - and Bikini Kill is the greatest punk rock band in the history of the world. Knowing I got to work with these amazing people means I can die happy."
