|King Loser is New Zealand's answer to the question "what would happen if Dick Dale collided with the Jesus & Mary Chain head on in a tunnel and Yeah Yeah Noh did the triage. Thick, dark and surfy material, with a gloomy outlook. "Never Hear Surf Music Again" (along with Matchstick Men) was recorded in Auckland during June 1992. The A-side "Tie Us Down" was recorded live to air at Radio 1, Dunedin on June 14, 1993.|

Never Hear Surf Music Again
The B-side of Blue's Theme, this is a bizarrely semi-melodic track, using a simple progression, and almost Richie Podolor tones. It's a strange side trip, seemingly waiting for completion. The last three minutes is a rambling mumbling psycho babble fest.
