The Get Hip connection came about in 1994, when The Cynics were invited to stop in Bozeman, while on their way out to Garage Shock. Gregg Kostelich and Ron Sanchez struck up a friendship, and the deal was put together. This came only a few weeks after the call from Magical Jack. This great leap of faith would be the most important event in the history of Donovan's Brain.

The two sides of this single were chosen to show the wide range of sounds the Brain were producing. Hit Me In The Face was one of the last songs written for Shambaholic. Ron wrote the music and title line while watching the Woggles at the 1994 Garage Shock Festival. A historical note: the arrangement was worked out a couple of days later at Jim Sangster's apartment, while waiting for Jimmy Silva to show up. It was his birthday, and we were going out for dinner and drinks. Jim Kehoe wrote most of the lyrics for the verses Any line Ron sings, he wrote. This song owes a lot to the Stones and Johnny Thunders, that was not an accident. 50,000,000 Years was taken from Butterfly Wheel. This version has new vocals, and was remixed for the single. In this review, Fred Mills pointed the listeners towards the B-side.
