I didn't know that the show would not go back to you

I didn't know that the lies that were told would come true

I didn't think or even care if it all went down in rust

I didn't mind if it did but I guess it wasn't just

The consequence was begging

For a thing that smelled like true

And the operator called up

And the financing fell through

At least we got it demoed and my wife was sick and everybody cried

 Got laid off a couple times but kept on writing, man, because that's what you do

Every path of atmospheric musings keeps me coming back to you

The plot holes got dismembered

I lost my mind a bit

We put it on the podcast

Because we worked out the apocalypse

Spare you all the details

Just trying to write some songs

I'd like to keep on adding

It just takes so goddamned long

Let it rust

Dave Linantud - quitars, vocals, harmonica

Brian Lutz - bass, engineering, mixing

Sharon Santos - drums

"There's always a nasty mattress on the side of the road in the city."

"How's that for a Baltimore accent?"

I'm in the Arctic War and the Antarctic War

The ice is pink and black the sky is brown and grey

It's arbitrary, man, who you fight for today

It's geographic, man, for that they make you pay

For that they make you pay

This murder's never stopped since hands picked up a rock

It's cities and it's dust it's all downhill from here

We blew it when we tried to kick it into gear

Philosophy is dead on that we all are clear

On that we all are clear


The rumblings wake me up with blazing guns and then

The sky it opens up and Dawn she blazes fire

Through Elvis Presley's face the Czar and Khan retire

The mood it lightens up and Dawn douses the fire

So Dawn she saved the world

Or maybe just my brain

Or maybe all of us

Or maybe just the pain


Dave Linantud - guitar and vocals

Brian Lutz - bass, sound engineering, mixing

Sharon Santos - drums

This is a macro, pull out to wide lens to see the built world outside of Baby Blue.

The influence of the Monkees on THE BIG OPERA and the actual germ of an idea that led to this is explained.

"Hell On Earth" is SFP's attempt at a straight up apocalypse song.

This song also ties into Doom Cookie's "Brown Tape."

This song has another big long ending added to take advantage of Sharon's drumming.

Dave talks about how he had to memorize Shakespearean soliloquies in high school.

The use of said soliloquies in THE BIG OPERA has really matured.

Brian talks about work and Dave talks about fostering pitbulls.

35:00 shout out to Kelsi and Corridor Cast

There ain't no good or evil here

Grace has just up and disappeared

Everything's too fucking loud

Collectively we're a mushroom cloud

The ground beneath me creeks and moans

The sky above is filled with drones

The singularity is worthless

This brutality is just senseless

The maelstrom sucks dry every lung

It doubles down on flares of sun

The war city's a battleship

Plastics forged from hearts and hips

The rich sit back and place their bets

This isn't armageddon yet

The selfish wants of greed protrudes

The moneymaking then ensues

As long as this machine does hum

Cannibals, daughters and sons

It chews them up and spits them out

Humanity ain't got no clout

The writers write of fogs of war

The fighters fight the scorers score

Language warps primordial thought

Human life is sold and bought

Ain't no good and evil here

Ain't no good or evil here

Made Hood is an Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at University Putra Malaysia and played in bands with Dave when they were young flibbertygibbets. They joined Brian in Brian's basement, the legendary Possum Studios, and shot the shit. It's fun. Join in.

The fellas talk about these things:

1. The recent eclipse.

2. Ethnomusicology.

3. Bali.

4, Silent Majority into Kona into Gamelan.

5. The Gamelan technique applied to circular saw blades.

6. Made gets a shitload of different tones from said blade!!!!!!

(Dave here. Professor Hood elevates the discussion somewhat. I sound like a fucking spaz. I'm pretty good at yelling shit out when Made or Brian is trying to make a point.)
