"Miserable Bastard" is is my love letter to the assholes I know. Let's assume they don't know who they are because they really have no ability to self-criticize or self-evaluate...just self-adore! I affected a pseudo-Britpop accent simply because the music called for it. This is the first recorded take of the song, and probably the first time I ever played it all the way through. I wrote it as I watched my favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, make Jon Kitna and the Cincinnati Bengals look like a bunch of kittens. Literally, this is being posted within an hour of it being written, and it's truly dedicated to a couple of guys I know, because they are truly miserable bastards! This song also holds the unique distinction of being the only song I ever recorded at our condo in Jacksonville.
