Noise, for me is probably the third-most significant song (at least significant to me) I’d written in-so far. I remember this one for the feeling I got, that I knew I was on to something, that there was a song sort of already done and I just had to decipher it all from that something muse-y and get it on to paper. I was particularly energized by the chord changes, and the topic of decomposing. I wasn’t intending it to be morbid, but a triumph over my stage fright, to come out of a shell, sort of in an Allen Ginsburg ‘Howl’ way. I have the best of friends, and I know they accept me. However and whatever the shell was; it is gone.
Recollecting on the studio time, I think I had written the song five years or so before we recorded it, but there is no urgency lost, particularly knowing Torbin would rip a great guitar solo over the ending circle of fifths. Roger pointed out that this one made us sound more ‘space troubadour’ than the other tracks. This is how my memory inferred the statement, I’m not entirely sure what exactly he said; for all my memory he might have said ‘space cadet’.
I thought it should be the first track on the album.
