Real Groove flashback #2: Chill out

Here's 42 seconds of The Chills... "Backwards version of the song Sweet Times from the Submarine Bells album. I have always wondered why it was so short (42 seconds or so), but recently got the following explanation from Martin Phillipps: "I once recorded a version of 'Happy Birthday' for Shayne Carter on my four-track cassette portastudio and when I played it backwards I heard this song. So, if you play 'Sweet Times' backwards you should hear 'Happy Birthday'. That's why it's so short."
