This is the eighth track off "Demanufacture." Although it's one of the  
less-played tracks off the album, I think it's pretty good and it'd  
probably be a lot of fun to play with a band (except the absence of all  
the keyboards might make it sound a little empty).  Dino doesn't pull  
any surprises with his sound--it's just the standard scooped sound (no  
midrange, lots of treble, lots of bass) layered with an equally tight  
distortion.
