Coming to the end of another season, Martin, Simon and the Sams discuss the resolution (or lack thereof) in the "concept" of this film-inspired album, as well as some of the charm and experimentation in the individual tracks on Foreign Affairs. With a certain amount of struggle to keep our shit together at the end of this very long, very hot recording session, the conversation breaks down for a while, but there's still some worthwhile… oh, forget it, we totally fall apart at the end here. Sorry folks, sorry. See you next season…
