Thank you very much to WE BE THE ECHO, LAST OF THE BLACKSMITHS, SWIMS, PLANETS, and IMPALED for lending us your band members. For the rights to legally reference and re-interpret divers pre-1923 works of artistic invention, we would like to thank the United States Copyright Bureau for their friendly relations with the jurisdictions representing Mary Shelley, Edward Lear, Bram Stoker, and Aeschylus. We recommend the Penguin Classics editions for introductory pleasurable distraction, and Thomas A. Goldwasser near Union Square in San Francisco for serious inquiry. Thanks to NASA for providing sounds of space exploration for public domain re-use.
