about

I composed this particular piece whilst I was doing what I enjoy doing most: running down small animals on my bicycle and chortling merrily as I pedal away. On the afternoon in question, I had just run over a small dog. I hadn't even been trying to run it over, mind you; in fact, I had actually had my fill of running down animals for the day and was preparing to head for home.

So there I was just pedaling along, minding my own affairs, when wouldn't you know it? Fido just pops out of nowhere, and, being the imbecilic mutt that he is, er, I suppose, was, apparently thought to himself: "My stars! That man is rolling towards me at an alarming speed on some sort of wheeled steel contraption! I think I'll just wander on over and say hello!"

Now, as I mentioned earlier, I'd already had my fill of running down God's helpless creatures for the day, so naturally I tried to avoid the dog. However, the spunky little fellow just wouldn't be deterred, and so the events played out in just the sort of unimaginative way that one might expect.

I felt a slight bump beneath one tire, followed immediately by a second.

"Arf!" said the unfortunate canine.

As I headed home that afternoon, a strange melody began whistling itself in the back of my mind. Needless to say, when I returned to my abode, I sat down and produced this recording. The rest, as they say, is history.
