about

"To retro grooves and hypnotic drumbeats, the duo are taking vicious potshots at the grimmest corners of 21st Century life," Bob Fischer, Electronic Sound magazine

1. Aim

Einstein said World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. All wars are fought with sticks and stones. Transposing the savage mindset of the military traditionalist to a different key reveals its absurdity and menace.

2. Calling Your Child

Advertising usurped education. Doors and walls cannot keep it out. Children are carefully tutored to desire the maturity of the consumer; then they are kept puerile and consumptive until senescence, when they are just too old to desire things and barely of any use to the economy.

3. Goose Latitudes

We all know the fable of the farmer whose greed led him to kill a golden goose, destroying his fortune. But how close have you have come to these destroyers? Do you know how sick they are?

4. Can You Be Sure?

I doubt therefore I am free. Our information is processed and presented so as to remove the discomfort of uncertainty. But there always remains this one question, however much the formulas - even quite clever ones - convince us we should throw in the towel. 

5. Trickle Treacle

A microphone left active captures the inner voice of a well-known cynical exploiter of the trickle-down economic decoy. These zombie ideas are really vampire ideas. 

6. To the Young Dead

The continuum we call living is a poem we demean by deserting it for creeds and nonpareils. Yet most of us get old having already died young. How to be young when you are old?

7. Shudder The Star

McGoohan trumps 007. Intuition and will play a part in investigation. The road to truth is treacherous, and along its path: deception, concealment, exposure, safes full of clichés, murder, bravery, revolution, and profanation. 

8. Carine the Candle

From an automatic bedtime story of light, the rules of our sovereignty: we need others to bring us into life, and to take us to its well; but how we live it and how we end it must be our own choice. 

Rules of automatic bedtime stories: Start your story within five seconds; do not hesitate; let the story take you wherever it wants to; tell a story appropriate to your audience; finish the story, even if your audience has fallen asleep.
