LA TRIMOUILLE: ANNIE.
This track was another bad MIDI demo that Peter had sent Kerry, with even worse demo ‘nah nah’ vocals that Peter had done. This was one of the last on the album to be written, musically and lyrically. We were at Kerry’s parents house in Colchester late last summer and had been struggling to find a subject matter for this song, so decided to watch the film ‘Overboard’ with one of Kerry’s favourite actors, Goldie Hawn, as a bit of a break. The film is a favourite of both of ours, so we decided to write the song lightheartedly based on the storyline. Kerry started this rather novel writing process by jokingly rapping some call-and-response lines over the demo, which we found surprisingly catchy, so we decided to pursue it.
Attached is an excerpt from the original demo that we did of Annie, which was tentatively called ‘Nu Metal Piano’. There’s also a photo of some of the synthesisers we used at Press Play Studios for the sine wave solos in Annie.
