This particular beasty was initially inspired by the opening track. The Organ was an all too shortived band that modeled their sound around some of my favorite 80s bands - The Cure, Joy Division, The Smiths, etc. I assumed that the mix would continue along in that vein and it did... at least for a bit. Then Johnny Marr and Morrissey did their thing and the tempo was all blown to hell. Tones On Tail ran with the dark, slightly loungey feel and then Beme Seed reduced it even further. Then Clock DVA arrived.
What the hell was that about?
Anyway, I ended up slipping further down the proverbial spiral with the help of Swans, Xmal, and The Cure and then added some additional weirdness with This Mortal Coil. Just an odd stretch. I managed to pull it back some with the Cocteau Twins, but by this time I was pretty much exhausted, so I slipped out the backdoor with some help from Mr Reznor. It's noisy and ugly in the middle, but, at a slight touch over 58 minutes, here it is, scars and all.
