    Using crowd - funding, we were able to fund a limited pressing of 300 heavyweight picture-discs, with all our backers thanked in an insert which will be included with every copy of this edition.

    Around 130 people backed the project - we can now offer the remaining copies through mail-order.

    The artwork was designed by band member Penelope Collegefriend. It's 45 rpm, with two tracks on the first side and the third track on side B.

    The 12" comes in a transparent PVC wallet, and will be posted to you in a high quality cardboard record mailer.

lyrics

Preternatural conquistador
Every bomb and bullets ancestor
Simultaneously host patron and prey
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye

Distances immunities vs. increased ranges poison
Signs of appeasement hidden by curving horizon
Malign projectile benches five murders per minute
Scrutiny reveals his reflection in it.
Winged; Proud; Effortless; Blue-eyed; Blond.
I’d have smothered him years ago if he was my son

Fear and defeat secrete a barbiturate
which Enola Gaye extracts.
Relax, sit back and sip it.

Preternatural conquistador.
Every bomb and bullets ancestor
Simultaneously host patron and prey
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye

Blasting off by northwest Pacific
Burn two hundred thousand civilian souls as fuel
Touchdown dance by northwest Atlantic
Fifty-seven year lesson in economic provocation

In 1800 I saw the atom bomb
And shaped myself in its likeness
I have called upon my demons
Called upon my demons;-
“Possess my body,
Cloud vision,
Mushroom path.”

Fear and defeat secrete a barbiturate
which Enola Gaye extracts.
Relax, sit back and sip it.

Preternatural conquistador.
Every bomb and bullets ancestor
Simultaneously host patron and prey
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye

Borne of friendliness and loyalty
Let the children live to witness me
This is what the pious fear when they pray
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye

Photo-fits face of each assailant
Beast and fowl harnessed as surveillance
Martial hymn; unresolving cadence

Preternatural conquistador.
Every bomb and bullets ancestor
Simultaneously host patron and prey
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye

Borne of friendliness and loyalty
Let the children live to witness me
This is what the pious fear when they pray
To the flight path of the Enola Gaye
