NEW TRACK... for most of u anyway
thanx to stacia, a devoted ishmaelite, for going down to the cellar and tracking down this vintage bottle of cherrywine. she recorded it off the video, then i boosted the gain. like she said "the quality sux, but it's ish."
this song came at the end of the movie "planet brooklyn" (formerly known as "men without jobs") and was made towards the end of the cherrywine era, like '06 or so. speaking with ish in '05 he let me know that he had finished recording the 2nd cherrywine LP which was going to be called little epic. he described it as "real minimal". i'll stick my neck out and say that this song was meant to be on that album. so that's 2 albums that ish has recorded but which never got released. fuck! but i'll also venture that some of that material made it onto shabazz palaces. i'm thinking in particular about "a mess, the booth soaks in palatial musk" which is definitely "real minimal".
anyway, this one's also notable for the fact u can make out (almost) all his lyrics straight away. turn ^ the volume
