Notes

Originally "Symbol Sickness" was intended to have been a full-length album, featuring 12 songs including the four above. For this EP version, a commercially available CDr and vinyl issuance were planned (on Nophi Records), but ended up being scrapped.

The EP version was available exclusively as an MP3 download from the Nophi Recordings website during 2000 and the first half of 2001, but was taken down. The MP3s reappeared again on the Nophi Recordings website during October 2002, but were taken down for good this time.

In September 2004, the full-length version of the album was made available, but as a single MP3 file from the ezRPM website.

The bitrates for the original MP3s are as follows:

1. "Extra Credit" - 114 kbps
2. "The Robots Are Coming To Kill Us" - 110 kbps
3. "Symbol Sickness" - 106 kbps
4. "I Don't Know Why" - 56 kbps

The picture sleeve lists tracks #2 and #3 as "The Robots Are Comming To Kill Us" and "Simbol Sickness", respectively.

Man, it's such a shame this was never released. o9 here again shows his incredible programming skills, starting off the EP with a take on squarepusher's jazz and bass - except it's better than even some of the finest moments of Hard Normal Daddy. the next song is a fuzzed-out, volume to the max drum and bass with lots of spacey ambience and copped up amens. The final two tracks are a lot more ambient and atmospheric, but they aren't as engaging as the first two. Excellent work, this guy is a genius...
