This, this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy – we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward.  we recorded it all in a burning motorboat. 

(context as follows:)

1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS – look at that f**king skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes! 
 
2. BOSSES HANG – labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously!  kicking at it, but barely hanging on!  also – the proud illuminations of our shortened lives!  also – more of us than them!  also – what we need now is shovels, wells, and barricades!
 
3. FAM / FAMINE – how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise.  the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. with the dull edge of an arbitrary meritocracy.  neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine.  the forest is burning and soon they’ll hunt us like wolves.
 
4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE – kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil.  emptied of its trees and water.  a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a sh*t because it knows it’s dying too.
 
Finally and in conclusion; The “luciferian towers” L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:
+ an end to foreign invasions
+ an end to borders
+ the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex
+ healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right
+ the expert f**kers who broke this world never get to speak again
 
much love to all the other lost and wondering ones,
