Kid Mania - GATE

Nature points out the folly of man. At least, that's what we'd like to presume Kid Mania is attempting to warn us of on his sophomore Vivarium Recordings release, GATE. Further expanding on the world he has been building across his many records showcased on fellow net labels such as Sunset Grid and DMT Tapes FL, GATE should be noted for its intensity, both thematically and musically. Covert operations, quantum storage, the religion drug. All are brought to life with a jolt of webpunk electricity.

This album often feels like a physical artifact left over from a shifted reality, the horror being that it acts as more of a mirror to our world than a portal to another. In crafting this reality that could have been, Kid Mania revels in these concepts as magnified observations on very real happenings, albeit in limited forms. For now. Sadly, us dumb Earth hicks just don't get it.

GATE was written, produced and assembled by Kid Mania.
Recorded and mastered at RK Studios from April to August of 2019 (Except 'Morning High', recorded at Grieving Arts Studio, produced and assembled at RK Studios / 'Godzilla', recorded July 4, 2019 at Dakarig Dome, Aphelion Drift).

'Godzilla' live recording engineered by Robbie Hate.

'Morning High' music composed and performed by Jsun Brock.

Words for 'A Condition Worth Denying' and 'Siphon Racket' written and performed by Kid Mania.

'Godzilla' written by Donald 'Buck Dharma' Roeser (Downtown Music Publishing) performed by Kid Mania and The Vapor Raiders.

Big thanx to The Vapor Raiders on 'Godzilla'!

Track Name: A Condition Worth Denying
Dremchak bin roamin the countryside since Trinity back in ’45.

A Condition Worth Denying: Parapolitics is a system or practice of politics in which accountability is consciously diminished. Generally, covert politics. The conduct of public affairs not by rational debate and responsible decision-making, but by misdirection, collusion and deceit. Consider various historical parapolitical actions and interactions between public states and covert agencies, organized crime and so on.

Query: Are elements of the Dremchak Corporation colluding with the Nova Mob?

Off-world metagroups callin the play. Various nexus points between the underworld and the overworld contracted out for reality siphon. Dumb Earth hicks just don’t get it.

Call it the Dead Planet Shuffle.

Metagroups are private groups collaborating with and capable of modifying planetary policy, particularly—but not exclusively—with respect to international drug trafficking. Over time metagroups have tended to become more powerful, more highly organized and more independent of their parapolitical connections.

Some metagroups may be extraterrestrial or extradimensional. The infamous Nova Mob, a galactic criminal syndicate, is an example of such a metagroup.
Track Name: Siphon Racket
The siphon racket cuts bits of reality for quantum storage
Later smuggled out to advanced civilizations
Who pay large for playback
Sometimes as illicit entertainment
Sometimes as research
Sometimes as, um, ‘military precaution’.

Jacky Blue Note, a rogue Archon
With the Nova Mob
Back on-planet and operatin a siphon racket
Got the Vapor Kid on for the ride.

Lately Blue Note’s bin runnin a side game
Infectin new worlds with the language virus
Then pushin their culture
A near-pure variation of the religion drug
Never seen anything quite so addictive,
Screamin fanaticism and rivers of blood—

Anyway.

The Blue Note ain’t your average creature, see
Non-corporeal existence,
Needs to inhabit a biological entity
To interact with the other life forms

(On Menzora, the Vapor Kid once witnessed Jacky
As an evangelical preacher,
His flock so strung-out on belief
That when the Blue Note told em to drink the kool-aid
They torched their whole fuckin planet)

Naturally all of this is highly illegal

But Jacky’s unique form and exotic tech
Allow the Blue Note to easily escape
Both the intergalactic Nova Heat
And the Dremchak Corporation

However, word on the street
Has the Blue Note detected, triangulated
Dremchak Preservers closin in on the coordinate points
Closin in onna not-so-safe house. . .
Track Name: Godzilla [Live at the Dakarig Dome]
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high-tension wires down

Helpless people on subway trains
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh, no, they say he's got to go
No, no, Godzilla (yeah!)
Oh, no, there goes Tokyo
No, no, Godzilla (yeah!)

GODZILLA!
