Godspeed You Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers LP
this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy. we aimed for wrong notes that explode. a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat.
1. "Undoing A Luciferian Towers" - look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen - the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!
2. "Bosses Hang" - labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also - the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also - more of us than them!
3. "Fam / Famine" - how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine.
4. "Anthem For No State" - kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn't give a shit because it knows it's dying too.
much love to all the other lost and wondering ones.
