“Let Me Be Right” began its slow evolution a decade ago, as a tune I wrote just so I’d have something easy to play at an open mic.
It first found release under its original name, “Shooting Holes”, on my lo-fi EP I recorded on vacation in Eugene, Oregon. Always felt good but unfinished.
Again, this one got demoed for a band version but ended up one of the tracks J.D. and I fleshed out for TRIALS. J.D. played a skittering guitar part for it and we piled on the distorted, overdriven guitars.
Oddly enough, The Jesus and Mary Chain soon released a new album and the vibes closely matched up. The song was definitely demoed with the JAMC as spiritual parents, so it was inevitable I suppose.
This might be the only song on the album with no hardware synths!
