9 Die Winnipeg Die Die Die Fuckers Die (Spreading the Hepatitis SKM-ETR Style)

"Things will be much better for me once I move to Vancouver." Everyone here in Winnipeg is born with these words ready to launch out off their tongues from the first -50° school recess they get that very tongue stuck to the zipper of their parka. This is my tribute to those people! My love for their hate, this is Winnipeg science gabber! Is Winnipeg really that shitty a place to live? Yes, it likely is. It's really fucking cold and people still seem upset about Eric's Trip breaking up. Sometimes I like to go out and listen to the The Sisters of Mercy with like 5 other people that are scared to talk to each other. Mostly we stay inside, sometimes go to Safeway and get some stuff, I like fruit salad and cigarettes, but I can't smoke here anymore anywhere and not much fruit grows here in the warm season, maybe crab apples or something. Never really liked those and Al hates rhubarb with a passion. I hope to die here under the wheels of a transit bus with a picture of Randy Bachman on the side.

9 Hiszékeny (Gullible)
10 Kétsarkú Mozgalom (Bipolar Movement)
11 Senki Dala (Nobody's Theme)

Titles are in Hungarian; the album title translates to "Born Under a Bad Star".

What if, for just a day, we could both be pigeons? Sometimes one moment in time can take on such an important signifigance that it becomes an endless world unto itself and everything outside of that moment, past and future spots in time, become the folklore of that world. What if we could both fly over the Királyi Palota and see it just as these pigeons do? A beautiful culture of dissimilar angles as donkey angels above this city. But even in the world of the infinite moment, we cannot choose the feather of our bird and the pigeon may long to be the goose, the donkey the pigeon and so on. Furthermore as our world blossoms out of this single tick in time, it is for one pigeon a swirling romantic flood of euphoric possibility and fascination, for the other an inferior life of shitting on everyone from the sky, awkard and ashamed, resigning themselves to be the wretched nuisance they are painted as by those they shit on. Ultimately, as quickly as our world blooms, our world is discordant, and our pigeons are wounded, and as our world dies, we die, and we are extinct. If only we could kill ourselves over and over until we get it right. So just as an entire genre of music can be born out of one sped up ten second breakbeat, a full symphony orchestra can come together in harmonic unison to create that perfect moment in time, thus every moment can give birth to an entirely new world, and every world can house the perfect moment, and just as that breakbeat may be broken beyond any recognition, that orchestra may combine to bring forth a dissonant barrage of colossal sorrow, and so the moment disintegrates it's world and that world suffocates the moment under it's collapse. These are love songs and grief songs.

Preorders from Planet Mu came with a bonus CDR, "Lions Manor". Several versions exist: the first track is one of the following songs: "Away, Away", "Beacon", "Cruel to a Heart that's True", "Heaves Heavy Heart", "Particle of Dust", "Simpleton", and "Soil & Fences". The second track is one of four stems from the song "Lions Manor" - drums, strings, bass, or vocals - released as a puzzle to be re-assembled post hoc. Some versions are more common than others; for instance, only 4 copies containing the track "Simpleton" were pressed.
