In the case of Join Us I infer that Flansburgh had been understandably weary of producing the whole album package himself as he usually does, with me standing passively by, arms folded, scowling unhelpfully at his suggestions for album titles.

Why is it that every time in an interview where John Linnell describes Join Us as an adult album, he says that it sounds like porn? I can understand if he brings it up once, but , but, it’s like EVERY TIME.
Like….can you just IMAGINE if it WAS about…y’know.
Well, there ARE three songs on Join Us that turn me the hell on, which is a higher proportion than any other album. “Can’t Keep Johny Down” cos dicks dicks dicks, “Canajoharie” cos STRONG ARMS OH MY GOD, and “The Lady and the Tiger” cos…uh, stuff it would reveal too much about me to get into BUT NO IT’S NOT BESTIALITY CHRIST. It’s just one particular line really, and I ended up writing a whole porn story about it. Yep.
