The iPhone Triple X

Dear Friends,

The Hard Taco song for December is called, “Strain.” I wrote this tune when I was 17, but two decades of song-specific writer’s block prevented me from coming up with the last few lines. Over time, I became so confident that I would never finish it that I actually poached some of the lyrics I liked for other songs. Finally, last month, we dug it out of the vault, and patched it up with some new parts, producing the recording to give it that early Hard Taco vibe. The song came out okay, but most importantly, I feel lighter having recorded it!

Hard Tech-o: We review the iPhone X so you don't have to
Thinking about getting an iPhone X? If so, don’t humiliate yourself my mispronouncing it when you go into the Apple Store. You are supposed to say the Roman numerals, so it is actually pronounced, “One phone Ten.”

The first thing you will notice about the iPhone X is the new 5.8 inch OLED display. Compared to the LCD screens of previous iPhones, blacks look much blacker. In fact, every color in the spectrum looks blacker, so that ROY G. BIV now stands for Raven, Onyx, ebonY, Gorilla Fur, Black as Hell, Inner Space, and Vacuum. If you turn up the brightness on the screen, you can also see shades of Pitch White.

I’ve got the fattest hands
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the baddest band
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew a girl when I was back in the war
She had that vintage smell
What the hell was that for?
And you know, back then
Everything went according to plan
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
And if no,
I better set it again

I’ve got the bleakest grin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I’ve got the weakest chin
Call Guinness
Call Guinness
It’s record time

I knew the girl was hot stuff with an axe
She only turned heads
When she was breaking necks
And you know, back then
I had the most checkered past
Will the record last
I don’t know
I better set it again


Matt Cameron - additional vocals
