226. "Boris the Spider" by The Who

Requested by the Broome family. Requests are going to be a little dicey for the next few days while I work through some obligations... don't worry, it's not forever.

This is in fact the very first Who song to be covered on 39-40, and, oddly, it's not a Pete Townshend composition. Both of these facts are only slightly less weird than the fact that yesterday's cover was the very first Bowie song I'd done. There are only a few more bizarrely unrepresented core artists out there; it'll be interesting to see if chance brings any of their songs my way.

There hasn't been a Braine recording for a while, and this seemed like a good one: Miranda already knew the bass part; Eden sang the song with Wye last Halloween at one of their very first gigs, and Ridley was incredibly enthusiastic about coming up with terrifying ways to utter the title phrase at the appropriate points in the song. Not to spoil anything, the new lyrical additions were written by Eden and their inclusion was her idea to begin with.

Happy Halloween, dear listeners.
