Hello Columbus

by David E. Williams

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Although released in 1999...It's 1492 all over again, as savage white noise collides with a delicate string quartet and Williams sings merrily of slaughter, Faustian hegemony and
    the drying socks of failed contemporary artists. As Deleuze said of Sacher-Masoch, Williams once again demonstrates "a peculiar way of 'desexualizing' love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity."

    3-song CD EP that also features "Not a Gear at All" and "Listen Somewhat Awkward." Enigmatic and sometimes harsh electronics weave dramatically through an ensemble of Jerome Deppe on guitar, Kenneth Brune on saxophone, Michael Scott on drums and The Academy Quartet on strings.

    Commercially, this CD was an attempt to graft Williams' songwriting style onto the aggressive elecronic, pseudo-industrial style of artists popular at the time (Marilyn, NIN, Rammstein). In essence, to become more popular by being less "pop."

Your meal was manufactured just to stain my dish. Socks hang from the shower rod like sad white fish. I bathe her face in piss for the flies about her fear it. I penetrate her anus with a civilizing spirit. Oh, Columbus Hello, Columbus... Hello, Columbus. Hello, Columbus. Hello, Columbus. Ave Columbus! Your life was manufactured just to feed my wish. Socks hang from the shower rod like slaughtered savages. I would make love to you if I only knew where my gun went. Love lives infinitely when stripped of mutual consent.

about

3-song EP released in 1999 (Ospedale) with the following press release: "It's 1492 all over again, as savage white noise collides with a delicate string quartet and Williams sings merrily of slaughter, Faustian hegemony and the drying socks of failed contemporary artists. As Deleuze said of Sacher-Masoch, Williams once again demonstrates 'a peculiar way of 'desexualizing' love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity.'"

In reality, this CD was an attempt to graft Williams' songwriting style onto the aggressive electronic, pseudo-industrial style of artists popular at the time (Marilyn, NIN, Rammstein). In essence, to become more popular by being less "pop."

Released on April 1, 1999, the day of the Columbine killings. We're not making this up; by "released" we mean: that's the day the boxes of CD's showed up.
