New Macca (Fireman) song...wow


Recommended Posts

Good One. :D

Paul McCartney explains:

"'Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight' is a phrase that an old friend of mine from back in the 60's, a guy called Jimmy Scott, used to say down the clubs. He was actually the guy who originally said 'Ob-la-dee ob-la-da', and I made a song out of that.

"You'd say to him, 'Too much, man' and he'd say, 'No, nothing too much just out of sight.' So I grabbed that and suddenly you could see where it was heading and I followed that trail."

We're a long way from 'Ob-La-Di', however. Indeed, it's hard to remember the last time McCartney sounded quite this ferocious. At times the track recalls the fire-and-brimstone intensity of Spiritualized, while the frantic coda finds Sir Paul whimpering like a dog over scabrous bursts of slide guitar. 'Flaming Pie' it is not.

'Electric Arguments' is released on November 24 on One Little Indian Records.
