We used to call ourself Garmisch Partenkirchen. But decided to leave Partenkirchen out of it. It was a hard decision. But we´re Garmisch now, for the benefit of all people with spelling difficulties.

This is a new track. The lyrics are based on Steven Wright-quotes. I think its one of the best lyrics we've ever written. Too bad though, we didn't actually write them.

If you remember, Steven Wright was the comedian that invented the internet in the early nineties. Or at least, his jokes were the most common and most important intellectual material distributed in e-mails when people first learned how to e-mail. People were sending Steven Wright-jokes around like there was no tomorrow. Just because they could. This is gonna be the subject of research in the future: Where, or what, would the internet be without Steven Wright-quotes?

I don´t really know what Steven Wright is doing today but he was, or is, a brilliant comedian. So consider this a homage, to Steven Wright, and to the internet, and to the nineties.

The snare drum on the other hand, comes right out of the eighties...
