1-Speed Bike: Droopy Butt Begone!
This was the first release (2000) from Aidan Girt, the drummer from Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Exhaust. I believe that he played drums on the first release from A Silver Mt. Zion entitled: He Has Left Us Alone but Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms.
For this release, Girt re-used some of his old beats. He cut them up, looped them, and added some field recordings. The last thing you will hear is the sound of a toilet flushing to compliment the final track, Any Movement That Forgets About Class Is A Bowel Movement.
Constellation records describes the CD as follows:
The heart of the record finds slow loping beats ebbing and flowing around a beautiful palette of melodic figures and harmonic whirrs on “Just Another Jive-Assed White Colonial Theft”; a sustained hip-hop groove anchoring the playful sample stew of “Why Are All The Dogs Dying Of Cancer” and the house-inflected beat workouts of “My Kitchen Is Tiananmen Square.” linkI couldn't have said it any better, so I won't even try.
