A few years ago I thought to look it up & found out it was by Negativland, and out of print. I debated procuring it by the eBay route, then forgot about it. A few minutes ago I recalled the song again when our cassette liner notes appeared on my screensaver.
Seems the Negativland l.p. has recently been rereleased.
As I've said before, I've lived to see a marvelous future in which I can do something like sit at my desk & think about something like that & two minutes later be hearing that song again. It shouldn't really be amazing, but it amazes me.
The song is sorta pretty, as well as pleasingly straightforward in its deadpan silliness.
.mp3 --> "Four Fingers" — Negativland
[If you want to hear the Us Guys version, email or comment to that effect & I'll hook you up.]
It's been a long, long week. I float now, late Friday afternoon, wearily giddy, as if recently in some shock that's not fully worn off.
And I am a man, a man with four fingers.
Gonna wrap it up at the office in a few & head out & have a weekend.
