I'm..er...a Real Traditionalist myself of course, because of orbison, and holly, and the fireballs and the string along, and er, all the things that happen in the studio.

I'm so glad to...take care of...studio and...

    General CommentI don't know if this is true, but I've been reading up on David Koresh and the Branch Davidians, and I think this is another of the BoC's references to them. If so, it'd be that the Branch Davidians criticised the Seventh Day Adventurists for not holding onto the original ideals. David Koresh was particularly vehement about this.

    He was a Real Traditionalist.

    General CommentIt's Seventh Day Adventists Guerilla. How could Branch Davidians carp on them for not holding onto the original ideas? Branch Davidians were formed after a break with the Seventh Day Advent religion. The Branch Davidians were the ones who didn't keep all of the rules of the religion they broke from.

    General CommentI don't think this is a reference to David Koresh. I'd say this song was written in the 80's as it was on the 'Old Tunes Vol. 2' album. I don't think Branch Davidians were known well until the seige which was in 1993.
