Can you imagine a soothing blend of Jojoba oils, Citrus, and WD-40 being poured into both ear holes simultaneously? Then you are only able to scratch the surface of the feast of pleasure pressed onto the vinyl object residing, at this moment, right there, inside the paper slip, between your two sweaty palms.

—Foreningen for den Usynlige Hesten / Label


The cover looks great – the music, completely and utterly over the top in terms of artistic suicide. This here must be Terje's way of telling art "you can't fire me – I quit"

—Tidens Krav / Financé


Giving art a melody, is like giving “here” a “t”. It is no longer here, it is there – still a place, but not a place we care much for.

—Tidens Krav / Partner


LYRICS AND CHORDS:

Walking Studio

She was a walking studio,

The Seminar

E
Me and a friend,
A
we were going to this Seminar;
E
were Neeke Carsson would run around all weekend
A
with a finger up his arse.
F# E
Ina Blom would speak, with her clear sensemaking voice.
H A E
She was my main social target and my choice

When we arrived,
we met two unexpected friends.
They were doing something in-between a catering absurd
and a photosession with a fisheyed lense.
The fact that people looked really weird with this fisheyed lense,
was the main reason that they're project made sense.

Some Swedes were there,
they made a really shallow stunt;
annexating all in-between-the-countries-no-mans-land
and re-naming it as their own bunt.
The fact that no-one ever did this before,
was the main reason this was not a joke, but something more.

A - Am
Seminar

Burn (Performance)

We never saw, anything like it,
Abmaj7 Bb

The Uffington Horse

Cm - Bb - Ab - F

This is a salutation from Galaxy Spaceship, JUAN FUERA, to Spaceship Earth.
This message is sung, and we already know, that you will all feel, relieved by the fact
that someone from outer space finally are contacting you,
you think: thank God for saving our ass and you will immediately accept us as superior,
(we believe in transparency)
if you don't feel the way we described, you are not yourself and you have probably been pretending most of your life and now you feel, alienated because you recognize what we say as
contrary to your core markers of identity. but as you probably noticed already you are accepting us as superior and you are relieved that after all someone came in and saved our ass,
as you like to put it.
(we believe in transparency).
JUAN FUERA has both good and bad news and who do like first? (ha-ha-ha)
we know already, that you like to have the bad news first, so we give you the bad news;
which i s that nothing is going to change, everything will remain the same,
we will not intermingle with your world, because of genetic contamination,
(we believe in transparency),
the good news is, that we will keep you as a distant colony,
we know that you already know what that means,
we will extract and transfer your most valuable assets,
which you don't know what is, and therefore keeps waisting,
and we will not tell you what is is, because it will end all war's, and you will have nothing to fight for. This message is brought to you through Master-Jammer,
specialized in processing communication to your level.
Don't try to contact us,
we see and understand, everything you try to communicate into space, and it's all stupid,
maybe with the exeption of the Uffington Horse.
(we believe in transparency)
