“The title is from four words an autistic girl wrote on a piece of paper in a class I was supply teaching in. She was non-verbal and could barely produce any written work but had produced these four words. I figured she must have got the phrase from a TV show or book, but I couldn’t find any reference to it. It’s kind of a goofy phrase but I like it and was amused by the idea of using it for a song about various bosses I’ve had in day jobs over the years. Writing the song in lockdown, politicians kept barging into it as well as college managers. So the characters are fictional mash-ups of various real arseholes.” – Joe

‘Down With The Creeps’ is an addictive brass-driven earworm made with the help of two other members of Sergeant Buzfuz. Joe’s wife Polly MacLean (Slate Islands) sang bvs and Ian Button (Papernut Cambridge/Gare du Nord Records) remixed and mastered.
