RP: Philosophically it would be the primordial ooze from which we try to crawl out of every time we make a new LP.
I’m particularly excited that the legendary track “Deep Freeze” is finally being released as one of the bonus tracks. Why didn’t this exquisite beast make the cut for Law of Ruins?
JM: A big part of it was the obvious Black Sabbath rip-off. I think I was the only one who was really into it at the time, but of course it was my thing. I had totally forgotten about it.
What can you tell me about the other five bonus tracks?
RP: The bonus tracks were recorded in another transitional period right before the Half Control LP was written and recorded. (J and I) both had synth heavy 4 track setups and these tracks were just a few that were in line with the MCC vibe.
James Apt: I don’t know that we were “going for” anything other than just trying to re-develop/re-configure our musical chemistry which, up to that point, had been pretty strong. But John’s unexpected departure (after Law of Ruins) definitely affected the overall chemistry of the band.
OK, what else?
JM: Six Finger Satellite were not Nazis, we just really liked their uniforms.
