Notes

Recorded at Electrical Audio while autumn fell.
U.X.O. is unexploded ordinance is landmines is cluster bombs.
All of it mixed at thee mighty Hotel2Tango during snowfall & first bloom.
09-15-00 is sept.15,2000 is Ariel Sharon surrounded by 1,000 Israeli soldiers marching in Al-Haram Ash-Sharif & provoking another intifada.
Love to; hugsam, jem, j.s., si.
Though godspeed is guilty of profiting from hateful chainstore sales, we encourage you to avoid giving money to predatory retailers and superstores. & hope still, a little resistance always maybe, stubborn tiny lights vs. clustering darkness forever ok? thankslovegodspeed
you!blackemperorgoodbyexoxoxoxoxox

Made In Canada.

Comes in a gatefold jacket with a folded insert. Some copies may also include the Constellation catalog 1997 -2002.

Divided in four parts (sides A to D) unlike the CD which has five tracks. CD's tracks 1 and 2 are both on side A.
Sides C and D share titles, but are not the same song. Often cited as 'part 1' and 'part 2'.
Side D (track 5 on CD) apparently features some extra material that is not on the CD: the beginning has two more ambient parts before the one that is in the beginning of the CD-version.
Track D2 contains silence.
Track D3 contains a George W. Bush sampled and cut-up speech and applause.

This is the definitive version of the album. I've never listened to the George W Bush track until now. It's absolutely haunting, despite being a product of its time. "we encourage you to avoid giving money to predatory retailers and superstores" Well I'm glad I bought it in a local store

Were there multiple pressings of this? My copy has a 12.25"x12.25" piece of paper with the same art as the back cover, and I can't find any info on why exactly my copy has that

Is it just me or does the last five minutes of "09-15-00" sound like a slow cover version of Big Star's "Holocaust"?

IMO this is their best material, a very sad soundtrack of human failure.
