The "Tragical History Tour" is a song released on the album of the same name. The song was written by Dirk McQuickly after he encountered a tea substance trip with his brother Spike McQuickly, a history professor who worked at the University Of Oxford. Dirk claimed the title came from a saying by his younger brother who said to him "roll up for the tragical history tour!". The song was recorded a week after they completed Sgt Rutter, and Dirk took up on most instruments during the recording session.
