people have just read way too much into it, which has given it this mysterious, cult-like power.

Also, lately I have just fully realized how great Old Tunes 2 is, especially tracks like Mukhinabaht, Magic Teens, Zander Two and Orange Hexagon Sun. Such a great tracks. I hope that one day (deep in the future) we'll get the official release of those. I can also only imagine how fantastic the Catalog 3 must be.


yeah. remaster and (re)release ALL the old (unreleased properly) stuff, please. on vinyl. Warp (& BoC) would clear up!

But yeah I think of Pete Standing Alone as being a very creepy track, way creepier than most of the stuff on Geogaddi (which I, despite its weirdness, associate to lighter feelings than MHTRTC).


same here.

it's hard to actually describe Geogaddi. because it's not even that weird or sinister, really.
i think of it as an Autumnal-sounding sort of record. but then you have tracks like 1969... and other summery vibes.

edit: i suppose it's just some of the samples they've used and all that reversed nonsense that's given it this weird/sinister vibe. people have just read way too much into it, which has given it this mysterious, cult-like power. *something about 'collective consciousness' goes here*.


Not sure about that "secret messages" stuff, but Geogaddi seems to me more experimental and less melodic than MHTRTC.

No problem. But, seriously, I've never been really bothered with those "messages" talks/rumors. Music is great, that's all that matters to me.

well some of it is less melodic, but then a lot of it is more melodic, and simple.. as in more minimal.
mhtrtc is more beaty in places, but then it also has some great basslines and melodies and weird shit going on.
i wouldn't say that Geo is more experimental than mhtrtc, though! naaaah way. Geo is much more straight up.
but anyway this is all just a matter of opinion, innit. :) but my opinion is the right one. :emotawesomepm9:

ahh good, you seem to be one of the normal people that listens to it and takes it at face value.

I can get behind that :beer:

Lol. Not sure about the normal people part, though. I know what their music means to me and that's all that matters to me. Let's just leave it here. :)

mhtrtc is nice and I have fond memories of listening to it quite a bit in the summer of 2000.

Geogaddi wins for me though, it just seems deeper somehow.

That said I have a have a few tracks I always skip; Gyroscope, not because it's bad but because it makes me feel suffocated. Energy Warning, A is to B...., From One Source All Things Depend are just annoying breaks in the sound that do nothing for me at all.

open nine to five. Workshy. Yubi. She's a devoted branch davidian.

I prefer Geogaddi more because it's generally consistent from begening to end. Music is obviously just a buncha tunes compiled together that weren't all created for the same purpose.

Both albums have an undercurrent of dread. Geogaddi perhaps more obvious.

Mhtrtc is a record I would only play during the day, it hasn't got a night time vibe whereas I'd play Geogaddi anytime, be it dawn, middle-of-the-day or at the Witching hour.
