This was the first time we ever went busking. It was in Lawrence, KS. We were sitting on a bench and this dude came skating by and sat down next to us and said, “You guys wanna get fuckin’ drunk?” and of course we said “YUUUPPPP!”
He pulled out a giant bottle of vodka from his backpack and took a slug of it. He looked like Jeffrey Dahmer but his name was Will. He said that he stopped because he thought we were “train hoppers” and saw my Johhny Hobo patch. We told him about Yak Bastard and he immediately wanted in. So we went to his friend’s house so he could steal his guitar.
When we posted up he started playing Leftover Crack covers. He and Conner took turns playing while I just sang along and drank beer. People started to gather around us and some actually started giving us money….until Will started playing GG Allin’s “Expose Yourself to Kids.” Then people stopped giving us money.
We made about 8 bucks, then spent all of it on adderall from some chick we’d just met. Will told us he was going to come back to Topeka with us and live in our house and help us finish the album.
Back at the Yak Haus I passed out immediately and woke up the next morning to find both Will and Conner asleep on the living room floor surrounded by beer cans with this song finished and recorded.
