Their name is taken from a mythical creature out of a popular Norwegian children's song, 
a cross between an elephant and a crocodile, 
"a lumbering trumpeting beast with a fearsome array of teeth in its snapping jaws...".

I don't want to buy it,
I just want to rent it for a minute or two"


"On February 1st, 1974, I moved out of my parents house and into the top floor of a 4th story walk-up rent-controlled apartment in East Boston (similar to the one pictured above) with two of my oldest and dearest friends Tony Leonti and Vincent (Dr. Boom Baa) Moretti. Then and now, we always have a great time playing records together in the Archives. Our individual picks are listed by the selector and are not in running order.
These guys are the most obvious and guilty
of all the Usual Suspects and I'll stop loving them when they
grow the fuck up!

*The sound-collage coda was Blame The Media by Project Data Control and can be found on The Droplift Project compilation CD, released in July, 2000, which was "droplifted" or reverse shoplifted into chain music stores allowing the artist's work to appear next to "legitimate" releases.

You can find it here at the wonderful Free Music Archives site!

**"...No form of government has yet been discovered by which cruelty can be wholly prevented. Subordination supposes power on the one part, and subjection on the other, and if power be in the hands of men, it will sometimes be abused. The vigilance of the supreme magistrate may do much, but much will still remain undone. He can never know all the crimes that are committed, and can seldom punish all that he knows."

Dialogue by the character Imlac in the novel Rasselas written by Samuel Johnson in the year 1759, when he was fifty years of age.
