Video: 'Needles and Pins'
Highlight: "'Needles and Pins' was written on the subway late at night years ago as I was trying to catch my breath after a hostile altercation outside a bar that ended with me being chased by at least three people," saxophonist/singer Stuart Bogie tells Spinner. "As I sat panting and sweating on a bench in the G train, the melody and words began to come to me. I wrote and recorded most of the vocals there in the subway car. You can hear the quite panic in my voice while the music drives another message: 'I got away, suckers. Time to dance!'"
