My First Food Riot...

(Amended March 30, 2009.)

The Inexpressible Greatness of J. Marlowe, Pt. 1...

(For those delightful occasions when your constabulary conscripts the pockmarked.)

Memory failed, I erred utterly, and I apologize to J. and Edward, who were kind enough to rewire my synapses with swift corner kicks to the dome.

Herr Marlowe, a once and future (and unrelentingly caustic) Ugly American scribe, clues me in:

"While I can appreciate your tentpole-in-pants enthusiasm for the phenomenon that is Greg Chapman, your avid readers should be aware that both tracks on Imp Rape 2000 were cranked out solely by yours truly, one forty-five- (or thirty-) minute guitar track at a time (sorry, no samplers, sequencers or keys - I was indeed listening to techno, but also to the Herzog-esque, dragging-the-boat-over-the-mountain madness of Branca and Chatham). “Torture and Torture” is, in fact, the track that eventually morphed into “Seething Deluxe” from the Holland/Skin/Tunnel CD that lurks somewhere in your collection. I’m sure that you’re very busy creating the missing algorithm that will conclusively link mortgage rate trend analysis with shitting-in-sock-drawer porn, but your attributions need sorting directly."

And so they have been.

Personnel:

J. Marlowe - guitar

Original recording information unknown, but I'd guess that the masters were captured direct to four-track in Red Bank, NJ, sometime in 1995.

Remastered by Tom Smith at Western Blot on September 22, 2008.

hey tom, the music on the imp rape express tape wasn't made by greg chapman, he just put it out. the tape actually contains tracks by fellow ugly american scribe j. marlowe acting without consort or conspirators. all the imp rape stuff was a prototype for what ultimately became holland/skin/tunnel. would be cool if you could correct the listing and the text file in yr rar file.
