No. 9

by Michael McDaeth

Eyeball Man 02:15
First you need an enemy maybe punch 'em in the mouth then you build a wall and lock your door pull up the bridge knock down the trees see as far as you can see and make the others bleed Now you got a war machine what you do with a war machine but use it quite liberally to smash bodies and extinguish dreams oh baby, check your soul down 3 pints in the love zone you don't know what you don't know but dream the dream on a dirty floor everybody sucks Yeah I had a dad unkind rather shitty but never mind my mom was timid and out of time couldn't go on down the line well the president's just a figurehead it wouldn't matter if he were dead they replace him with the one that's next and so on down the list everybody sucks These protestors with clever signs I'm surprised they even find the time between kayak trips and mountain climbs the end is near the end is nigh they're too polite to make a mess unlike our dumb fundamentalists who curse the devil then help him dress oh, who will start the show? who will start the show?

It is the case with most socket sets that one or two sockets go missing.

This was the situation for Michael McDaeth's 7 disc Socket Set (2012). No one knew except McDaeth that his Socket was at one point a 9 disc Set and that most of the songs for disc/sockets 8 and 9 were lost through mishap and misplacement along with the master recordings. It's the kind of heartache you keep to yourself.

Well it happened recently that an early copy of the No. 9 disc/socket came to light. It was found in an old toy box. It looked as though it was used as a launch pad for various rockets and spaceships. In any case, here for you is disc/socket No. 9 to add to the 7 disc socket set
you may already possess.
