After recording their previous album, AIN'T LOVE GRAND, original guitarist Billy Zoom departed. Large-scale success had eluded the band and that release had been specifically designed to reach a wider audience. That success didn't materialize and SEE HOW WE ARE, two years later, was a sort of return to form. The rootsier underpinnings of Exene Cervenka and John Doe's songs were now given wide berth. (This was also the era of their offshoot group, The Knitters, who explored the resonance and beauty of old chestnuts and their contemporary lineage, exclusively.)
Ex-Blaster Dave Alvin stepped in as guitarist briefly before Tony Gilkyson joined permanently. Though he appears in a group photo in the booklet, Alvin departed prior to the making of this album. However, one of his stellar numbers, "The Fourth Of July," makes its debut here. That song, along with the title song and "When It Rains" show that X's roots go far deeper than that of most of their (by-then defunct) contemporaries from the late seventies punk scene.
