Staring at each other (duo) with no working Playstation controller. “Damn!” the duo exclaim. “That new drum sound I heard in EuroSpar is sweet. Wanna just make a beat and [jrmy mrphy] whatever gear is lying around from our other bands?” The duo slowly [jrmy mrphy] upstairs with a bottle of Bailey’s and some incense. “This is so wonky” – the duo smiled.”
