I can feel the whoosh of twitter and farcebook followers leaving at the sight of the title… Funny how idle thoughts grow. I tend to have to follow through on everything to the most absurd conclusion, so there was no question I could pass this up.
The genesis of the idea:
People actually get taken seriously with album titles like “fucked on a pile of corpses”?? I’m catering to the wrong crowd. My next release will be called “Assraping a Nun”. Maybe then people will finally open their eyes to the sweet soFISTication I’m offering them.

I did my three versions and came up with the three artist names in an hour. (Hive Mind Drones, Sweetmeat and grave Knave.) There’s a continuum of artists playing with imagery and lyrics just to “shock”, from juvenile attempts at being bad and getting attention, to artists trying to wrap shock-as-pr strategy in bourgeois-tweaking art to others who have definite political or personal agendas delivered in an ironic stance that can’t be easily pinned down.
I have something special for you.
This thing started out as something of a joke, about how some bands can get away with the most inane and infantile track and album titles. I said “I’m gonna make a track called Assraping a Nun”. Before I knew people said they wanted to do their own versions. And that’s what happened.
I did a gonzo track in about four hours, and all these people sat down and did their own gonzo remixes. It was all fast, “unedited” and very spontaneous. In less than a week we had an album of sorts.
I give to you both the original track, and eight (!) remixes by fantastically talented people. I am humbled.
Massive thanks to Larry Kerr, Batcheeba, Frostwinter, Epilektrician and P. Emerson Williams for contributing these mixes. (Mr. Williams went ahead and made three of them even…)
