In 2017, The Long Winters' John Roderick performed "Cinnamon" live for KEXP listeners at Little London Plane during Upstream Music Fest. Roderick was joined by Sean Nelson (KEXP, Harvey Danger), former Long Winters drummer (and 4AD head) Nabil Ayers, and musician, engineer, and longtime Long Winters member Eric Corson (Perfume Genius, Los Campesinos).: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrkVFj1-ES0 “‘Cinnamon’ is a love story set in a Red Brigade, Baader Meinhof gang, 70s or 80s-era Europe, where the two protagonists of the story are these revolutionary anarchists. Their gang hideout is being closed in upon by Interpol. There’s an explosion and the girl gets away. The guy is captured and they’re pressing him for information about her, but he won’t give her up all he’ll say is that her skin is like cinnamon.”
