about

This track is a perfect facsimile of my mind during the brief time I worked for a major record company during the best part of 2001.

Scrambled banality courtesy of an artist who has since disappeared into obscurity like almost every other I dealt with during my stay at the record company.

I finished this track on the eve of September 10th 2001, just before I went out to celebrate getting a new job and finally being able to quit the record company only to be confronted, early the next morning, with the horrible footage of planes crashing into, and people diving out of burning buildings as news broke of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington.

This is kind of like the antithesis of William Basinski's works composed around the same time.

lyrics

I like you
[b-but]
You’re the only one breaking all the rules
[I]

I like you
[b-b-b-but]
You’re the only one breaking all the rules
[I]

I like you
[b-but]
You’re the only one breaking all the rules

I like you
[b-b-b-but]
You’re the only one breaking all the rules
[I]
