This track came to life as the band’s composer, Tom O’Grady, sat on his sofa in search of writing inspiration, shortly after starting the band. As he stared out of the window he watched his neighbour walk her pug, Cornelia, down the road. Amused by the way Cornelia’s owner had to pull on the lead to drag the dog away from all the exciting outdoor smells and sounds, Tom started writing and the groove for this track took shape, inspired by the clumsy, shuffling pug!
The Mizell Brothers-inspired intro runs into the main groove of the track - if you listen carefully to the melody, you can hear the owner tugging on the lead! The track then really takes off, with a barnstorming tenor solo from the virtuosic Alex Hitchcock, immediately followed by a Rhodes solo courtesy of bandleader Tom O’Grady. Finally, the melody returns, with Alex and Tom trading licks.
