We have to talk about 'Cab Ride'. The response to this song from our fans has been overwhelming.
Ever been out partying into the wee hours of the morning and you've been having the best night of your life. Nights like that can get messy, can't they? Then you realise you've lost your friends, you've lost your phone and the daylight is starting to creep onto the horizon and now you just want to get home. But then you've got to face the cab line!
It's a fun, pacey tune that at it's most basic is a subtle ode to the pioneers of Australian rock. Drummer Richard Ploog from The Church and Adrian the keyboardist from Icehouse joined John's band The Unclaimed in 1993 (The Neo Now's John Jones).

Huge respect for all the Aussie pub rock geniuses upon whose shoulders artists are rising up today – The Lime Spiders (Mick Blood we love that you got so successful, you inspired us, John knew him in Newtown Sydney in the late 90s), The Radiators, The Sunny Boys, Spy vs Spy, Radio Birdman...
