Heavy Cage and Tudor influence again with this one.,especially with the processed voice on "the Duke Of York", which sound like a man trapped in a circuit fried computer which is slowly being shut down, like HAL in "2001", except this time the rhyme is "The Duke Of York" rather than "Daisy Daisy". Its basically the cry of the trapped human soul imprisoned in a cacophonus sarcophagus of flesh,the death of the soft computer....I suppose this is where the idea of downloading the human essence into a hard drive to escape death rears its unattractive features once again? It's a most haunting piece of work.
The "Bird and Person Dyning", not dying, side, could be the start of electronics emulating something else? Its basically processed feedback and an oscillator chirping like a bird for 25 minutes.
Like a Nightingales song as heard by a person with raging tinnitus before the fatal shock wave hits.
