Hi there! Long time listener, I'd like to say thanks for all the music you've made, it's among the best I've heard, if not the best. Tons of great times and feelings due to your music.

Of all your songs, Jack's Cheese and Bread Snack is my all time favorite. I'm dying to know what the background to creating this song was. It feels like there's just too much of a story inside the song to have just made it willy-nilly.

It took forever - easily the longest to make on Blumenkraft - because I just couldn't get it to do what I wanted it to do. I tried adding things, removing things, speeding it up, slowing it down, but nothing would make it sound finished.

Then one evening my friend Daz came round and I played it to him. "Your bassline is shit." He said.

And it was.

So he got his bass from his car and played what you hear on the track in one take. And then it was finished.

I listened to it this morning for the first time in ages and I really enjoyed it. It was a great time in my life and hearing it brought back many happy memories.

But the 'story' is yours to create.
