Geoff Rickly Reveals His Childhood Obsession with Commercial Jingles

Geoff Rickly of Thursday performed at Kops Records early this week and talked about how “This Song Brought to You by a Falling Bomb” came to be:

… and I thought, god, I wish I could write a commercial for a bomb because it’s like the perfect product; people need it, they always want to blow each other up, but you can’t reuse it, so you’ve got to buy a new one every time, and the market doesn’t even set the price; it’s federally funded. Man, this is like the perfect product, and I started writing jingles for bombs and this is the song that came out of it.

He also performed four acoustic songs, which you can watch below.
