Boc Maxima


  • A weather phenomenon, prominent in Calgary and the surrounding area - [pete from phaelam], [averythefishpeddler].
  • A native American people of Oregon (in light of the other track titles Kaini Industries and Pete Standing Alone) [DC] - see comments on those tracks elsewhere on the page.
  • A make of helicopter, the Boeing CH-47 Chinook, used in the US and the UK.
  • A famous checkers-playing program, the first to win a world championship. Since one of BoC has studied AI, this is a good suggestion, especially as the program was written in Canada.
  • The opening melody is nearly identical to that of "Wildlife Analysis".

Samples / Lyrics[edit]

  • It is thought that the sound made by a fishing reel (perhaps casting a line) was sampled and used as part of the percussion loop early in the song.[1]
  • From 0:40 onward, samples incidental music from episode 5 of the 1968 Doctor Who serial "The Wheel In Space".[2]
