so I went through some old files from back when I first noodled around with music programs in 2002-2004. apart from trying to work in song structures I often found myself in noise wonderland at that time: long drones, muffled field recordings (a tape recorder in my pocket recording, well, pocket noise!), harsh delay-shrieks and such things. 99% of it is crap. I´m not sure if this here counts as 1% not crap but at least it has a frame of meaning,
it´s anti-war, anti-dying for any government that tells you to die for it.
once you hear it you will understand what connects it to raymond pettibon´s brillant drawing of the same name (first published in „a new wave of violence“ in 1982), which I shamelessly ripped off for the cover.
