I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

by Dimitri & The Godhead



This was actually the first ever Retinal Circus piece, a scifi radio assignment in college, way back somewhere in 2003/ 2004 now at last seeing release under the DMT moniker. Made with tape loops, 8 track meanderings, a mandolin, a few electric guitars, and field recordings of a house mate named Dicky, it is clear now in hindsight, that the separate projects (Dimitri and Circus,) have always being about, but never separated as they should be.
Equal parts inspired by Radiophonic Workshop and the likes of Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O, and of course, Nurse With Wound.
