At last, here's the final tune from the 1991 MayTricks demo (which I've made a new page for), "Her Skin Is Only Warm."
The song was written by Steve and was our most bombastic. It was modeled on The Rolling Stones's "Steel Wheels" album, meaning it has kind of awkward "Rock! Rock!" lyrics, but it was actually describing a particular situation where Steve's roommate had a thing for some woman. In some of the verses, Steve and I switch off lyric lines, and we harmonize in a somewhat out of tune manner. There was keyboard playing during this song, but the only thing I can detect is the occasional "ping!" sound on the first beat of a few phrases. This was actually the song that, after the fact, made said keyboardist quit the band, as I think he thought it sounded godawful, but we liked it!
A somewhat more technically correct version, still pretty spastic, was completed for the So Chewy album.
