let's find out
this, this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy – we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat.

(context as follows: )

1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS – look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen- the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!

2. BOSSES HANG – labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also – the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also – more of us than them! also – what we need now is shovels, wells, and barricades!

3. FAM / FAMINE – how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. with the dull edge of an arbitrary meritocracy. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine. the forest is burning and soon they’ll hunt us like wolves.

4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE – kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn’t give a shit because it knows it’s dying too.


finally and in conclusion;
the “luciferian towers” L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:
+ an end to foreign invasions
+ an end to borders
+ the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex
+ healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right
+ the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again


much love to all the other lost and wondering ones,

Don't bend ascend was terrible. That's the last one I bothered with.

when i saw SMZ in 2005 for 6$ it was amazing.
but right, it hasn't been the same in the past few years, with their more "punk" band approach...

I blacked out on whiskey and cymbaltas at their show in St. Louis in 2008, and started heckling the singer about Jeremiah Chapter 31 and the New Covenant. Didn't get thrown out, somehow. Was discovered later on by my friend with my leg hanging out of a locked stall in the men's, cozied up to the toilet, face stuck to the floor

I can only remember the 1st ten or fifteen minutes of the show, but there was a lot of long dirty hair, sanctimonious jawing, and the keen smell of farts

I think this was around when I saw them last too. They turned into a rock and roll band.

F#A# > He has left us alone > slow riot > sings sign rebuilder > lift your skinny fists > born into trouble > telegraphs in negative

I could easily live with only F#A#, he has left us alone, and sings sign rebuilder and be done with it, even though "lift yr skinny fists" changed my life.

Those Set Fire to Flames records have held up exceptionally well.

born into trouble was the last good ASMZ record. they turned into a rock and roll band after that. stars/no stars is a pretty good song but too many vocals too many drums too much ego.

"this is our punk-rock" doesn't sound very rock n roll to me. i enjoyed it a lot at the time and even thought it was ok for godspeed to disband because SMZ was expanding nicely, but then yeah it became somewhat more standard rock.

i really took those records (original GYBE and original SMZ) as being 'of their time' though, sort of zeitgeist if you will... so yeah it's not the same to revisit them 10-20 years later.
