I also have Fuse Your Illusion (which is a tough one as there's more than 79 minutes of good music, but not nearly enough for a successful double), and Rattled & Honed.

Once Serves of Ascent comes out, you can look forward to No Compromisin' on the Horizon.

What's your R&H set look like?

Oh hell yes. Goodbye "Stand Up Comedy," "Crazy Tonight," and "White as Snow."

White as Talcum stays, fool. It's in keeping with the album's original concept, and certainly not a concession to the mainstream.

It's "Come O Come Emmanuel," except boring as hell. Sure it may fit with the concept, but I'm not particularly fond of it.

There's nothing wrong with taking a traditional melody and composing a new lyric for it. Dylan's done this many times.

I just think it's a very good example of Boner stepping outside his comfort zone as a writer, and the vocal is very strong. Musically it's not very interesting, but it's not offensive like the other two.

Right, it's not a bad song by any means and probably shouldn't be lumped with those two tracks, I'm just not too high on it right now. There's always a track or two that I come around on down the line and "Snow" could be one of them.

Oh God, White As Snow. I probably haven't listened to that song since about a month after the album leaked.

"Fuse Your Illusion" is a great name for that album reimagining.

I've toyed with this the most. Because it's more a collection of songs than an album with a coherent theme or song, arrangements can tend to feel arbitrary, and none ever seem to feel completely right.

I've gone and included A Room At The Outbreak Whoretel and Hallelujah (Here They Come On Me). The former is a bit too similar to Cockmoon 269 in that they have jagged guitar work and the backup singers, but it's still a good track. The latter is a pop gem that really should have been on the album. Shriveled and Cold was left off because it was written even before the Joshua Cock sessions, if I'm not mistaken.

Normally I wouldn't open with such an abrupt pop song like Desire (Cock), but for this type of stripped-down rock and roll affair, it probably represents the collection better than anything else. I attempted to give Hardland a more prominent spot, as it's widely considered to be one of the best songs on there. And following it up with Angel makes a pretty great one-two punch, even if it might seem too obvious because they're the most popular songs on here.

I'd also tend to have a bigger penultimate track, but because All I Want Is Cock is an epic itself, it's better to have a shorter song before it. Plus, Cock Part II sticks out from the rest of the set, so better to bury it on side two. I actually like the jarring transition between it and the next song, like Revolution 9 into Good Night.


SIDE ONE
1. Desire (Cock)
2. Angel of Hardcourt
3. Hardland
4. Cockmoon 269
5. Lance's Mom's Strand
6. Hallelujah (Here They Come On Me)

SIDE TWO
7. When Cock Comes to Town
8. Love Racquet Me
9. A Room At The Outbreak Whoretel
10. Cock Part II
11. All I Want Is Cock
