Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Yanqui U.X.O.

£28.99
Title:
Variant:

The third studio album from GY!BE and it still hits like a damn hammer!

U.X.O. is unexploded ordnance is landmines is cluster bombs. Yanqui is post-colonial imperialism is international police state is multinational corporate oligarchy. Godspeed You! Black Emperor is complicit is guilty is resisting. The new album is just raw, angry, dissonant, epic instrumental rock. Recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago and mixed by Howard Bilerman and Godspeed You! Black Emperor at the original Hotel2Tango in Montreal.

Stubborn tiny lights vs. clustering darkness forever ok?
