Mix Cover: Iconic LP contents for Godspeed You! Black Emperor – F♯ A♯ ∞ album release by Constellation in August 1997.
Main Image: GY!BE on stage.
F♯ A♯ ∞ was recorded at the original Hotel2Tango in spring 1997 on a rented 16-track tape deck and supplemented with various field recordings. In the preceding year, the band had taken shape as a quasi-orchestral outfit involving most of the players that would go on to make three more records and tour the world many times. This is the first recorded document of Godspeed as a large band and is soaring, fragile, awkward, heartbreaking stuff. Constellation released a vinyl-only pressing of 500 copies in August 1997, with LP jackets hand made by the label, the band, and various local artisans. It has since gone through dozens of re-presses, with virtually all of the original packaging elements preserved.
Aidan (drums), Bruce (drums), Christophe (violin), David (guitar), Efrim (guitar), Mauro (bass), Moya (guitar, banjo), Norsola (cello), Thea (french horn), Thierry (bass).
Recorded and mixed on 16-track reel-to-reel at thee mighty Hotel2Tango in Montreal by the band along with Don and Ian, May 1997.
This monologue appears at the beginning of the ‘Dead Flag Blues’.
It comes from ‘incomplete movie about jail’, an unfinished film that Efrim Menuck wrote a long time ago and has been working ever since.
The car’s on fire and there’s no driver at the wheeland the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicidesand a dark wind blows the government is corruptand we’re on so many drugswith the radio on and the curtains drawn
we’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machineand the machine is bleeding to death
the sun has fallen downand the billboards are all leeringand the flags are all dead at the top of their poles
it went like this:the buildings tumbled in on themselvesmothers clutching babies picked through the rubbleand pulled out their hair
the skyline was beautiful on fireall twisted metal stretching upwardseverything washed in a thin orange haze
I said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful – these are truly the last days”
you grabbed my hand and we fell into itlike a daydream or a fever
we woke up one morning and fell a little further down – for sure it’s the valley of death
I open up my walletand it’s full of blood.
