"this album is meant, by inspiration and intent, as quawwalli-eyes for the divinity of nature to observe itself and wonder. it is dedicated to lucifer, first artist, gabriel and mikhail, cain, and the sons of his sons, the amahl of youth, iblis/shaitan/dajjal, home-land, the burjo's world of dunya, scheherazade, isambard kingdom brunel, harry houdini, bryson gysin, william burroughs, the iguana twins and, of course, steve martin."

"our grateful thanks, first and foremost, to alex weston, who has been consistantly wonderfull, also to geoff wood for his enthusiasm and help, to all at chapel studios, but especially matt, of course, to our chauffer - tim and our sound savior, simon and all our touring family. For our real families, for all your care and support - love and strength. finally, to all at '46' for putting up with us when we are there and the dog when we are not - you know we're worth it!"
