“In the height of the first lockdown I was on a McCartney binge, and nothing is peak McCartney quite like writing a song about cooking!” Frontman Tom Rees explains. “I can just see Paul bobbing his head around various pots and pans, sipping pasta sauce off of a wooden spoon, and then yelping an ‘ooooh’ that’s kind of like the one in ‘Twist and Shout’, followed by one of his gravelly tones saying ‘sweet momma Madonna that’s a spicy pasta sauce’ like in ‘Oh Darling’.
“Lockdown was boring as hell, and after a week of drinking heavily every night in bed I thought I’d better get myself together. Who knew it would be Pasta alla Norma that would bring me back from the brink. In honour of my new found sanity I decided to write a song about cooking - cook on.”
