Liner Notes:

“Could it be possible for humans to breath underwater? A foetus in its mothers womb is certainly alive in an aquatic environment.

During the greatest holocaust the world has ever known, pregnant America-bound African slaves were thrown overboard by the thousands during labour for being sick and disruptive cargo. Is it possible that they could have given birth at sea to babies that never needed air?

Recent experiments have shown mice able to breathe liquid oxygen. Even more shocking and conclusive was a recent instance of a premature infant saved from certain death by breathing liquid oxygen through its undeveloped lungs. These facts combined with reported sightings of Gillmen and swamp monsters in the coastal swamps of the South-Eastern United States make the slave trade theory startlingly feasible.

Are Drexciyans water breathing, aquatically mutated descendants of those unfortunate victims of human greed? have they been spared by God to teach us or terrorise us? Did they migrate from the Gulf of Mexico to the Mississippi river basin and on to the great lakes of Michigan?

Do they walk among us? Are they more advanced than us and why do they make their strange music?

What is their Quest?

These are many of the questions that you don’t know and never will.

The end of one thing...and the beginning of another.

Out - The Unknown Writer”

    I only have CD 2 of this; should anyone be willing to sell CD 1 and/or the case, hit me up. Thanks!

      These guys were truly in a league of their own in terms of creating electro that sounded like it had been beamed straight from outer space. Absolutely pearless with their amazingly futuristic vision and roboticly funkatastic rhythms. This disc is a very worthy introduction and probably a much more ecomnomic solution if your after their earlier stuff since the prices for their vinyle releases have sky-rocketed since the death of one of the founding members. A true masterpiece!
