BACKGROUND

We did it as an encore, all at the front of the stage,” says Mark, and it’s this that sends shivers down his rhythm pal’s spine. “I had absolutely no love for this whatsoever,” says Woody. “It became part of the set after the album was out, and we had to go to the front of the stage at the end of the set, which was not my idea of fun—I like to be behind a drum kit, ‘please leave me alone, I don’t want to do this silly chant!’ And I’ve no idea why we did it. Absolutely no idea.”

John Hasler remains bemused by its inclusion, too—“should never have been on the album,” he says. Chris recalls they “just got a bit drunk and recorded it.” At the same time, all Alan has to say is that “Chipmunks” was recorded in Eden Studios. In contrast, all the other vocals were done elsewhere. I think that’s a diplomatic “no comment.
