BEHIND THE SONG

RICH PEOPLE PROBLEMS was inspired by a guy we met in Malibu, CA.  We were at the Malibu Music Awards because our song "Hello / Goodbye" was nominated for best rock song.  Hanging out in the bar area we met a guy who lived in Malibu and wouldn't stop complaining about the women, the dating scene and life there in general.  So we wrote a song about him...

RECORDING IN FRANCE

We went to the south of France with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (Hendrix/Zeppelin/Bowie/Kiss) and recorded 4 songs which became our Saint-Rémy-de-Provence EP.  I used Eddie’s unreleased F-Pedals EK-Phazevibe pedal along with my Ibanez modified Tube Screamer that I switched on the fly for the verses and chorus sections. I plugged into the Fender Super Reverb and Eddie angled our amps and mic-ed the room in a way for the least amount of bleed. This time all 3 of us were in the same room. Once Eddie adjusted all the mics and got levels we nailed it in the first take. Here’s an excerpt of that take in the Arcades at Studios La Fabrique on October 9, 2012.

LIVE AT SAINT ROCKE

This is from our Party Up EP Release Party on Jan 9, 2020 in Hermosa Beach, CA.  This version has Arif singing lead doing his best to honor the DeHaven's iconic version.
