I didn't think about it at first then I read it somewhere and thought "Why didn't I know. It's so obvious."

Nope, not at all. Only given to radio stations. All the stuff on is on Tremulant, singles and UK editions.

Ambuletz is totally off-the-wall to anything else they've ever done. I've been meaning to reverse it and see what the backwards singing is.

It's so.......................drug fueled.

Amazing though, absolutely amazing.


the lyrics are supposed to be -


Oh lord,
Oh lord, You've made it....
You wanna drag your vessel
you wanna hush your voices
you better drag your... you better hush your...
I'll remember that I'll need to carry on
I'll pretend you're not around, I'll forget you
just like everyone else, I'll forget you
is there anybody around, I'll forget you
just like anyone
just because, just because, just because
do you come here ohhh
shiver around, shiver around
oh lord, oh lord, you've made it....
You wanna drag your vessel
You wanna hush your voices
...hush your mouth



But i swear i can hear Cedric singing "i love you" a bunch of times during the song.

Sonic Youth 37 04.24.2008 04:11 PM

I just reversed it and still can't make out anything in the beginning. It sounds like he could just be singing the same stuff, only softer and in reverse.

screamingskull 04.24.2008 04:14 PM

hmmmm, as i said, out of all of the songs they have ever written, Ambuletz is the most out-there drugged up song.

Its a shame they don't write songs like that anymore, but i am also really really happy that they don't write songs like that anymore.

Sonic Youth 37 04.24.2008 04:20 PM

Yeah, I believe they wrote and recorded that at rock-bottom.

Well, let's see...they recorded De-loused in 2002 and 2003. Jeremy died in May and the album came out in June. So, yeah, late 2002-early to mid 2003 was probably rock-bottom.
