Comments

  • Joe Clay: "All I wrote for this one was: "Drone. Heavy. Aeroplane over my house." And I'm afraid I can't really remember what it sounded like. I can tell you that the title translates as "Seeds of the Dead" in Russian." [1]
  • Playing up this recording's "cinematic" angle, and following the Telepath's instructions to try listening "up and down," I reversed the order of the Tomorrow's Harvest track listing in my player: Try starting with Semena Mertvykh and ending with Gemini.
    • Further evidence to support doing this is the version of Semena Mertvykh in the Cosecha Transmisiones teaser/herald's soundtrack, the remarkable overlay of the Reach For The Dead video forward & in reverse (see http://vimeo.com/66983696), as well as the performers' comments regarding the palindromic nature of Tomorrow's Harvest.
