This song, along with “Head Cold”, were included on the Superpowers Cassette. It is certainly a different version than was released on Gravity. The song ends up being about a minute and a half shorter than what I was used to hearing. It’s definitely not a live recording, so I’m assuming that it must be an early demo of the song that was sent to Troubleman Unlimited before it was entirely finished. It seems like a lot of the songs that are on the Superpowers Cassette were eventually released later in much more polished versions. Regardless, even this early version of the song is amazing.

  1. Wow, I don’t think I’d heard that one before. Good song. I’m going to have that “are we really sick or do we just want to take another day off” (different song but it’s what comes to mind when I think of Heroin) line going through my head all day now.
