Leaked songs are kinda m0ist in the middle.




F#A#∞ is is not, but still interesting.

It went like this:

The buildings tumbled in on themselves
Mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
And pulled out their hair

The skyline was beautiful on fire
All twisted metal stretching upwards
Everything washed in a thin orange haze

I said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful -
These are truly the last days”

You grabbed my hand and we fell into it
Like a daydream or a fever

We woke up one morning and fell a little further down -
For sure it’s the valley of death

I open up my wallet
And it’s full of blood

The thing that surprises me is nobody has dubbed the tracks to a cassette and printed the artwork and posted the tape on eBay purporting to be one of the 33 copies.

The band must still be obscure enough to be cool then.


good god i love that album. it’s one of my desert island picks.

“There’s no way I’m selling my Korn CD without making a copy first”

-somebody’s shitty roommate (1995)

It was only found five days ago, give them some time :wink:

I gave it a few listens and it does sound exactly like the kind of recording someone would make on a four track with a guitar, some samples and field recordings in their living room in 1994. All the other fakes I’ve heard over the years sounded way too good or were just someone trying to pass off A Silver Mt. Zion/Set Fire to Flames/etc material as it. I’m leaning to thinking it’s real, or if it’s not, someone has made a very convincing fake.
