[edit] Comments

  • Two versions exist of the track. The earlier version on BoC Maxima contains a vocal sample from the conclusion of a 1982 adult film titled "A Brief Affair" altered by a flanger effect. For the later version on Music Has the Right to Children, the text was re-recorded and slightly altered, adding a reference to the Boards of Canada.
  • The pitch of the music rises gradually during the track, which can be noticed clearly by rewinding the track or playing it twice in succession.

[edit] Samples / Lyrics

"Now that the show is over, and we have jointly exercised our constitutional rights, we would like to leave you with one very important thought: Some time in the future, you may have the opportunity to serve as a juror in a so-called obscenity case. It would be wise to remember that the same people who would stop you from viewing an adult film may be back next year to complain about a book, or even a TV program. If you can be told what you can see or read, then it follows that you can be told what to say or think. Defend your constitutionally protected rights - no one else will do it for you. Thank you."

[edit] Trivia

The music underneath in the original sample is a snippet of the song "Timeless" by John Abercrombie. The snippet is mixed low in the Boc Maxima version, but can be heard if you listen carefully. The Abercrombie song is not in the MHTRTC version.
