about

“This is something that he has to do, that he will do, come fame or oblivion” -Chris Knox

The second volume of fiffdimension’s best-of compilations, a sequel to Gleefully Unknown: 1997-2005 , sees increasingly wide-ranging experimentation and exploration both sonically and geographically, from New Zealand and beyond to Australia and East Asia.

Track Name: The Only Ones Who Know the Earth's Worth
One female evening ships defining dark upon the pen
And Christ become a jailer
Couldn't separate the me from the iconography
When will the master become the servant?
The curtain arrow word time hand shot to mislinger
& a freefall served them askance
The upside-down seasons untoward uneven innocent
In the antipodean moonlight

Whatever happened to knowing is naught (no he is not) and a slamming of doors?

I would come to the sun setting, doing no harm
& its place were a band of misfits
Tired of his laugh & pay & pray for all to what its worth
He came upon a Celtic crown & caught ye up an arrow field
Not less than mean for all its purpose

All the intents were out of date, the grateful leaving innocence
When progress came down to the table
Gleeful owners trade & salivate
The meek shall inherit the Earth
They're the only ones who know what it's worth
As they work their hands into it
Track Name: Bush #$%^s Dogs
He beats he eats he roots he sleeps...
Track Name: Bucket Gutwave (reverse culture shock)
The bucket gutwave stone wave spasms, the bucket gutwave splits
The bucket gutwave turn unaided, the bucket gutwave parchment split

Grief will let us up in the green grass
The illumination of parchment notes
The grey will & being unaided graded
The persecutorial famine
Inasmuch as he hadn't lessened the whole in on himself
Inasmuch as we hadn't intended a stone wall will
The illumination of favours had to be unto all
& then had to be one too many forms of a fineward functioning mind time brain
Track Name: Inverno 13 (Indian Ocean sunsets)
Incoherent inchoate & vague quickly gains a turnabout, he willing & rounds his old homemade fractures into a pungent munificence about the room, bandaged & tourniqueted, fully four fifths of his soul is up for the bargaining gaze gains his waiting...
