Let's just say, for the sake of argument, that humans actually traveled to the moon in the 1930s. And let's just say, playing devil's advocate, that they found a phonograph record there. And let us just say, merely speculating on a hypothesis, that they played it and this is what they heard.

Two more segments of sediment from my laptop to your life - "Carnival Tunnel Syndrome" is a loaf of soft gloom that settles gently on your face and penetrates it, while "Ford" is simply a brief snippet of Gerald Ford doing what Gerald Ford did best - being impenetrable.

Yes, it's another pointless piece of pretentious plunkery from the Jeffrey Scott Holland Research Farm - collect all 1,000,000!
This one is called "Vegetable Mineral" and the management is not responsible for any subconscious restimulative disturbances to your nervous system while listening to it under headphones.
In fact, the management isn't really responsible, period.

As with Esquivel's See It In Sound, this bit of experimental ambient-noise is a tonal representation recording sonic impressions of many a misspent moment hurtling in an inebriated state through the murk of the mountainous night, dulled visual receptors scanning the blurred noctural landscape and seeking that light at the end of the tunnel that turns out to be an oncoming liquor store. Okay, actually, I'm totally making this up as I go along. But click here anyhow.

Two more Kentuckians tracks have made the jump to lightspeed: "Cheapskates" and "Next Exit".
"Cheapskates" was recorded at Otto Helmuth's Blueberry Way studios in Lexington, KY for the primary Join Our Militia sessions. It's a highly mutated cover of the Clash song from Give 'em Enough Rope. In the rush to get 'er done, the song went to the CD hardly mixed at all, creating lots of minor idiosyncracries in retrospect - the first word of the song, "I", is practically inaudible, the bass line is mixed too quietly, and the drone-guitar overdub goes in and out like the tide.
"Next Exit" is actually an demo outtake from the sessions for my solo album This Ain't No Rave, recorded alone in my garage in Berea, KY. It appeared as the final cut on most copies of Join Our Militia (Some copies had an acoustic demo of "The Girl From Disputanta" instead).
