While working with a Dutch band in Amsterdam in the '90's, I wandered into a sailor's bar in the harbor district. I spoke enough Dutch at the time that they brought me into their world for the evening, sharing stories and buying drinks. I'm sure elements of that evening filtered into the song Man Underwater as well. This song blends Chicago blues grit and grime with the grease and garishness of wandering the docks and beaches of Holland. Corky Siegel's masterful harp playing adds smokey depth to Steve and Mike's lurching swagger.
