Kid For Today

Kid for Today
Running time 6:23
Appears on In a Beautiful Place out in the Country EP


Samples/Lyrics[edit]

  • It has been suggested that the percussive clicking noise heard throughout Kid For Today is the sound of a slide projector. [DC]
  • "Strawberry Fields Forever" by The Beatles includes a drum fill featuring a distinctive tambourine at 0:57; this seems to be the source of the drum loop beginning at 3:00 in Kid for Today (as well as one of the drum loops in Sequoia). The sample is slowed down slightly and only uses the left channel. [1] Coincidentally, the line followed by the drum loop in Strawberry Fields Forever is 'Nothing is Real'.

Notes[edit]

It appears this track was originally intended for an LP on Skam. An unfinished (and at that time, untitled) version of this track appeared as a bonus track on a one-off BoC Maxima cassette given as a present to the girl who appears on the Geogaddi cover.[2]
