Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "...there was one called “Italian Guns” that I was working on for what seemed like months. Every time I started working on it I can’t be honest with myself: this song’s not going to be any good, it’s not going anywhere (laughs)." -- Shuffle Magazine interview
  • "There’s a song I kept trying to make called 'Italian Guns.' I liked the idea, I think I did three different versions of it without ever tracking it. I had some rhymes I liked in it, but I could just never quite flesh it out into something meaningful. I feel like if I bothered to track it, It’d be something that five years later you might go, 'Nothing wrong with that song!'" -- Stereogum interview
