The song was demoed in May 2011, ahead of a Junior Electronics gig at Bleeding Hearts, Brighton. I knew two other musicians would be performing with me (Mary Hampton and Lizzy Carey), so I wrote two other parts to go with my uke and vocal: (1) the bassline, played on a Pro One synth, (2) the toy piano and organ parts, to be played by one player. There are also two part backing vocals here. These parts and backing vocals appear more or less unchanged in the final recording. There is also the TR606 drum machine part here that is pre-programmed as a song (and was triggered by a foot pedal in performance).
