actually a *remix* tape. It's a project by DJ Q-Borg,
also known as MixxMaster Markkus. He plundered two
mostly-forgotten albums (classics, really) by first-
century progressive rock artists for whatever vocal
snippets would go over with a mass audience, and
then looped those voice samples over some apocalyptic
sound-effects in order to get that layered "retro" feel.
He even sampled some cool "Satan" references to provide
an ear-catching little overture. It's sure to make
for a hit single and will definitely appeal to dance-
format radio in a way that all that *old* crap never would.
P.S. Now that "Thomas" remix, that's *really* a work of art.
Hundreds of hours of deconstructive tape-splicing.
I hear that's it's actually John Oswald doing another
Plunderphonics project under an assumed name.
