to Scientific Flies
track description: (by Frank D. Underwaitle jr.) Since both scientists, I.C.HIR
and A:tapani.doc, have thoroughly collected all the new data which the
little caterpillar has sent from the mars-expedition, nothing seems to
be the same anymore: Science has to be written completely new...
The opener of the album,
A...DAT...DATA...(OVERFLOW!), is a piece that shows, what happens, when
there’s too much data around: it's overflow low!
WE ALL, actually the first
single-release-track of the album, then talks about ordinary people -
or is it us -living on the road and leaving the house. But pregnant
divorce is a state that has always to be taken care of. - And never
forget the power of words!
The third track is titled NEW
SO-CI(E)TY (CHILDREN) and is based on the idea that so far each
emerging society in mankind’s history used or uses specially designed
urban particles that perfectly fit the needs of the people in charge.
Thus, meaning to think about modern politics, corruption, and birth
control; and in result of all: car accidents, still representing
unwanted side-effects of post industrialized technology...
Then comes APOLLO. - Now, this
is some kind of a sun-chair like breather; an energy-refiller, or if
you like: the best accumulator-loading-device one can imagine.
Including some impressive joik from outer space, as well as transposed
noises of two Scientific Flies buzzling around, APOLLO takes the
listener straight up to the moon, two times around its orbit, and not
back to earth again...
The fifth track on the album is
FOR THE FIRST TIME, and it has nothing to do with a love song
whatsoever. Dadaistic-like phrases from everyday life are
meticulously reported and analysed before floating into the
unmistakable refrain, actually saying that there is always something
more around, than what is seen on the screen scene.
SPINNING WHEEL is like a
windmill-vane: spinning around and around... - until a vast landscape
emerges out of almost nothing, that, as soon as it comes, as soon it
disappears again... - until the vane takes up energy again and spins
around for some more; almost endlessly: just like waves on the ocean
rolling on to the beach, collapsing but being born at the same time...
The following track, then,
tells about the SMALL LITTLE CATERPILLAR that so successfully has been
sent out to that revolutionary mars-expedition (see also ‘News’), and
what happened to him after he had returned to earth in the year 2000.
(- bad luck, anyway...)
The 8th track now reveals, what
Scientific Flies like, dislike, sometimes do (or did), etc.; - all told
from their point of view (WE ARE SCIENTIFIC FLIES).
Directly following is LONG
DESERT STREET WALK, the ultimate animally shake-off dance-floor-number.
In fact, it is a very slow hip-hop, containing many meditative moments.
- One has to listen very carefully and patiently to it, in order to
discover all the lights and sparkles that appear unregularly during
that long street walk through the desert.
BONUS, then, is at first a
funny Punch and Judy show-song, but at second sight, it is a deeply
sociocritical piece, that talks about a bomb being found by Punch and
Pezi, the two naive chaps, who are still looking for a birthday-present
for their grandma... - The track ends rather openly, but not without
saying, that sometimes it’s not good to make light of anything being
found at the front-door.
After that, the two scientists,
I.C.HIR and A:tapani.doc, reveal a universal scientific fact, namely
that MARS IS COMING CLOSER TO US. Although everyone of us knows that,
it is the way, how they explain that special fact to us, which is
stunning and exciting at the same time...
Probably the most metaphysical
song of the album is LONELINESS IS COMING: a genuine snapshot of a
(wo)man´s psyche, implying the quest for ... a schönes Leben.
The last named song on the CD
is WHERE ARE YOU?: a rethorical question, being asked to the whole
universe. - Sometimes we need some help and advice from somebody else,
who’s not quickly at hand. But, whatever the question might have been,
most of the wanted answers are floating ‘round anyway, if we are only
that patient and perceptive enough to detect the helping hand/hint
beside us, that tells them.
All in all,
A...DAT...DATA...(OVERFLOW!) is simply a masterpiece of pure conversion
from truly scientific data - excerpted from an animally manned
mars-expedition in the year 2000 - into unmistakable auditive
overflows, which will revolutionize our images of our worlds.
