“Frank was demoing a bunch of my songs in a row to consider for the album and we were just finishing up recording Woman when I got silly during the ride out. So Frank joined in with his, “Bo, bo, bo!” and kissed me three times at the end, in time to the music. It was the beginning of our romance.” Essra Mohawk, 27 June 2011
