Dave Clark writes:
"It wasn't long after I'd finished the "Green Sprouts Meet Xmas Brown" tape that I received a visit from young Dave Bidini who, quipped with verve and vigour to match my own, helped me paddle across the musical waters leading to this entity: "Green Sprouts Meet the King of Thunder Bay." Smelling like a pike, feeling like a trout, we tested it on our uncultured snouts! It was both beautiful and stinky. No apologies. We just did it!."
