Whenever we play, we always feed a "Mystery Track" into an unused channel. We don't hear it while we jam, but when listening back and mixing, we'll bring up the track and see if anything fits. That's the deal here. Lonnie fed a voice through channel #8 and, when it fit we kept it (though, we edited out some words & sections).

This is our soundtrack to a fictional John Carpenter movie, King Heroin. Fans of Carpenter (who often writes and performs his own music) will recognize the plodding, heartbeat bass and tension filled atmospherics. Any connection to a John Carpenter soundtrack ends there, however, as we were quick to take off elsewhere. Imagine a futuristic landscape fraught with junkies and ne'er-do-wells... with... a creepy voice over, of course. Side 2 of this "digital single" is called "Humbucker (Short Version)," and is a faux "concert" performance from the imaginary film. In reality, if there is any here, there's no connection. But... what's reality anyway? Recorded Live.

Theme To John Carpenter's King Heroin (9:07)
