"That song wasn't supposed to be as heavy sounding as it turned out. We just started jamming on the riff and it took on the 'noise rock' dimensions, kind of a rhythmic thing. And that solo is a noise solo. It's very dissonant. That song was also the first song on the Sub Pop "hold" music tape. You would call them up, and when they put you on hold you heard 'Hunted Down.'" --Kim Thayil
In the case of "HuntedDown," a first-person narrative in the manner of Wilkie Collins, the motivation was decidedly pecuniary.
Like both novels, "HuntedDown" explores the fact that, beneath the civilised veneer, always lurks the impulse towards violence; like those novels, the short story is permeated with a sense of mystery; and like those novels, it arrives at a sensational denouement through the operation of coincidence.
"HuntedDown" is distinctive, however, in being an interesting experiment in undermining the confidence that readers habitually place in the authoritative voice of the first-person narrator who is also very much a participant in the action of the story.
