A studio collage featuring a piano tape Thurston recorded at his mother's house, the sound of a Peavey tube amplifier (a Bassman was used in the video) overheating, and an answering machine message left for Thurston & Kim by Mike Watt from Providence, Rhode Island, where Firehose were playing a show.

They'd played NYC the night before and Thurston had shown up w/ some cables and cassettes he'd purchased earlier. Mike asked Thurston to throw some trash away, and later on they discovered that the cables were lost. The answering machine message is Watt asking whether Thurston had accidentally included the cables in the trash he'd thrown out for him. "Mota" is Watt's term for marijuana.

Released as a 7" single w/ a stereo version on one side and a mono mix on the other.

A dreary video for Providence was made by Peter Fowler and Sonic Youth.
