A 100% OF 7 COMPLETE MONTHS IN THE MAKING, DRENCHING SLAVED AWAY LIKE A HOPELESSLY UNPOPULAR, INTROVERTED SCHOOLCHILD TO DRAG THIS, HIS FIRST FULLY-COMPOSED ALBUM FOR NEARLY 3 YEARS, INTO THE WEEDY SPOTLIGHT OF THE PENNILESS AND MARGINALIZED AVANT-GARDE. BLOCKED OFF LIKE A REPLICA VOODOO BREASTPLATE, HIGHLY COLOURED, PITCHED AT THE SPEED OF INSECT CONSCIOUSNESS, THIS ALBUM COMPRISES EVERY IDEA DRENCHING HAD IN 7 MONTHS FOLDED AND COMPRESSED INTO BLINDING MINIATURE CAR-CRASHES OF COASTAL JOKE-SHOP ACHTUNG, AND AFTER THE FINAL ELECTRONIC PUKE WAS PASTED ON, HE RECLINED IN HIS BACKLESS CHAIR, LIT A CHEAP CIGAR AND MARVELED AT HIS OWN BREATHLESS CREATIVITY LIKE A SMUG SHIT.

ORIGINAL LINER NOTES:

T.H.F. Drenching's "Personal Injury Assist" - LITHIUM ALUMINIUM HYDRIDE FIRE.

"A laboratory worker was attempting to distil Terahydrofuran (THF) using Lithium Aluminium Hydride (LAH). THF is a highly flammable liquid that can cause severe eye irritation and central nervous system depression. LAH is a water-reactive, flammable solid. The laboratory worker was slowly pouring approximately 1 gram of LAH from a plastic bag into a flask containing 500ml of THF inside a fume hood. A small amount of LAH leaked from a small hole in the bag, onto the surface of the hood and burst into flames, startling the worker and causing him to drop the remainder of the bag (8-10 grams of LAH) onto the fire. Concerned about the flask and bottle of THF inside the hood, the worker immediately removed his lab-coat and placed it onto the fire in and attempt to smother it." Gussie (Penny) TAYLOR B. 11th Sep 1905.
