We just liked the sound of it. We didn't think it sounded country and western until we read it somewhere. It's the 12-string guitar and harmonising that do it. Every one of our records has been different. We don't want to do the same old thing every time or people will get fed up with it.
I'm not all that keen on the record. It's alright, but I don't know, there's just something.
As it happens, I think It's All Over Now is the best single we've done, and I'm glad to say the group improves every time it makes a single. At least, we think so. I like the overall sound on this new one more than I did on anything before.
Murray the K gave us It's All Over Now, which was great because we used to think he was a cunt but he turned us on to something good. It was a great record by the Valentinos but it wasn't a hit.
