Second full length album from Polvo
, released in 1993 on Merge Records
. Quite possibly their best album; certainly their most innovative. Loads of weird guitar chunks and indecipherable inscrutable
lyrics. The first song, Thermal Treasure
, is probably the best song Polvo ever wrote; the melody will stick in your head forever despite the fact that you can't figure how they made those noises.
The original release of the album featured a seven-headed lion on the cover. It was, unfortunately, taken from a Jehovah's Witness tract without any sort of permission. Polvo and Merge were sued, and the record was out of print for a while. Thankfully, it was finally rereleased, albeit without the artwork.
