A document of unfinishable business in the music industry. Interpolations of glitch, gestures of psychological truth and echoes in incoherent space. Lyrics and language are given more dramatic purpose than habitual process of abstraction through cut-ups would allow. With a start point of Pulp’s classic Britpop rise and fall in a night of a casual E-head, the lyrics that follow obliquely tell a story. These are times we had, recorded and prepared for eternity.
