Ian C Stewart "Morality (alt verse)" MP3
This was the last 4-track mixdown tape before my Tascam Porta 05 gave up the ghost. Also the last before I left for Berklee, I guess.
Devilcake had dissolved, my other musical concerns were winding down, such as drumming with Earwig. Before I left Ohio I still wanted to start another band. A 'techno' band called Dislocation, featuring me, Todd and Jeff - the two Devilcake keyboard players. Jeff had an amazing synth that made its way to my house somehow. The tones were incredible & I was determined to lay the groundwork for us to have a band that made danceable, probably dark, um, techno industrial whatever music. Unfortunately of course it never came to pass, but I still managed to record a bunch of Dislocation "themes". Oh yeah & "Mortality" was one of the first things I/we wrote for the 'band.' I guess the whole thing was a precursor to Samarkand because we jammed a few times in my basement with a drum machine.
& what a coincidence, here are the early lyrics.
