A CentaClowns business card was found in a puddle 2 years ago with the following message:

"FUN FACTS ABOUT CHAINS #1

In his 1992 song “Dirt In The Ground” [not featured in this mix], Tom Waits sang “We’re chained to the world/and we all gotta pull.” What was less well documented during this period was the disciplinary that was given to Waits by the world’s manager for taking unsanctioned time out from pulling the world to write this song. Although he was eventually aquitted, the damage was done, and Waits’ example of bunking off and throwing off the chains of oppression has by this point been so roundly imitated the world now actually turns 44% slower than it did 15 years ago."

Whenever anyone asked what the business card represented, they always received exactly the same answer: "Who knows?"

(‘Rattlerace’ was mixed by Cynic The Clown in March 2008, using Numark TT-1650s, Pioneer CDJ800s, a then still breezy Gemini mixer and a Junior Spirograph)
