(Sweet Little) Monster was a birthday present to my friend Beast. Ze and I met around Thanksgiving 2010(ish). Ze was in town from Jersey and we shared a moment smoking cigarettes on some second floor balcony in Wicker Park. Few days later I found myself at a grindcore show in the basement of the punk house ze was staying at. There was one point I remember overhearing someone say to Beast: why are you hanging out with this white chick? Which, well, is a fair question. We talked a lot about monsters, and the political power in monstrosity. So, for hirs birthday I wrote this little ukulele song.
