about

Bombast is a time honored Beyond-o-tradition, and, inspired by an epic Christmas party at The Womb in Oklahoma City, Peter Fuhry began working on unused portions of the improvised jams that begat 2013's 'Relations at the Borders Between' with the idea of releasing the entire 4 plus hours of music on a fleece decorated flash drive connected to an album sized laminated piece of artwork built from a Sam Morris photograph.

Later, when the drugs wore off (this was like, a YEAR later), the original idea no longer seemed like a viable idea in a world filled with so many other kinds of awesomeness.

Even later, when one of Beyond-O-Matic's 'Tens of fans' innocently asked if we would be producing any more recordings soon, the idea of compiling the work done on this project into an album length work bubbled up to the surface.

Here then, is that surface, for you to skate around on and perhaps fall through. We kind of liked the way it turned out, and hope you do, too. 'Return To Again Once More (revisited)' is a longtime Beyond-O-Conversational riff, and seemed an appropriate title for the album.


This recording was produced from the unused portions of Beyond-O-Matic improvisations recorded in 2012 for the production of Relations at the Borders Between.

Overdubs on these sections were undertaken in 2015 and 2016.

Track Name: Hill 222
Lilting through the lyric at the start of the line
Wrestling with the rhythms as our worlds intertwine
Wondering what the winter would bring.

Ah ha ha
Sifting through the sugar at the start of the shine
Mingling with the tingling as our thoughts misalign
Medley getting ready to sing.

Up that hill to 22
Woo hoo
Down, down, down to the ocean we roll.

Oh ho ho
Who could we imagine would determine our fates
Who would press the button that would open the gates
Who would bring a storm to our soul

Ah ha ha
Riding through the riddles of a different coast
Meddled with the miracles we needed the most
Ceding all the fleeting control.

Up that hill to 43
Woo hoo
Bus to the truss of the beam
Bus to the truss of the beam.

Ahh
Bus to the truss of the beam.
Bus to the truss of the beam.
Track Name: The Engine
The engine of your mind idles perfectly in time
but the wheels,
but the wheels not turning.

The engine of your life idles flawlessly in rhyme
but you go,
but you go nowhere.
yeah.

We learn to walk
We learn to speak
We learn to talk
We learn too weakly.

The engine of our mind needs external force applied
periodically
ritualistically
sacro-sonically

Come take a trip with me.
Track Name: Each Divine Disturbance / Sounds Of Revolution
On one breezy summer night we dreamed of bloody revolution.
Through that purple lens our senses gleaned a rapid evolution.
In the dusty night's green sparkling dawn, a burning constitution.
Oh the snakes, still lurking in the lawn of our electrocution.

In the altering these actions bring, a changing of perspective.
But I hope you saw more than your raw, blood borne porn elective.
And I hope these ties that met your eyes were more than just observance.
And your turn as host would make the most of each divine disturbance.

Come on down, absorb into your being, being.
Bathe in sound the demons you are freeing, the demons.

One more breezy summer night we dreamed of bloody revolution.
Through that purple lens our senses gleaned a rapid evolution.
In the dusty night's green sparkling dawn, a burning constitution.
Oh the snakes, still lurking in the lawn of our electrocution.

Come on down to the next day, to the new way.
Come on down, you'll get through
To the new you.
Yeah.
Track Name: Slipping Through
All we've known
flooding in our ears, flooding in our ears
All we've shown
flooding in our eyes, flooding in our eyes
All we've seen
slipping through our hands, slipping through our hands
In between
Track Name: Receive Is To Send
So be for me
Only for you
One and a Two
Dance quickly through
Three and a four
Walk through the door
Waves on the shore
Fewer and more.

Half empty full
Spices to mull
Face leaves a skull
Bush weans a bull
Five and a Six
Eggs laying chicks
Chalk on the bricks
Tocks then the ticks.

Seven and eight
Dust on a plate
Wrestling with fate
gone on a date
Nine and a Ten
One Two Again
Laughing, a friend
Receive is to send.
Track Name: Radiation-driven Dissipators
Run
Run
Run
Run
No looking back
No looking back.

In the liquid methane drown
With the gravity going down
Through the endless empty night we hear no sound we hear no sound

As we're raining bombardment
Stain jading the innocent
Leaking life and powerless we've spun around, we've spun around

In the dark of space
Deteriorating
Like the angel's face
On the spice we're trading

We are radiation-driven dissipators
We are scratchy faders
We are thieves and traitors, all.
Track Name: Stay
Oh, their lives live still.
Though the wandering will
moves among the trees.
The air, the earth, the seas.

Stay in the birds that sing.
Stay in the greens of spring.
Stay in the ones you knew.
Stay in the love that's true.
Track Name: All Our Hope Radiates
Rock.

Along with this
The long soft kiss
A bliss from which all our hope radiates.

The long slow burn
The truth we learn
That green leaves turn along the figure eight

Falling through some dark cold night
and yet we see a hint of light
shining on a kite flying briskly in the ocean sky.

Fluttering with the joy I know
deep within my high and low
In the end, our spirits go where they are meant to fly

And so my love just hold this hand
Stay with me for I stand
Though we may never understand, won't let that hold us back.

Just hold this hand
Hold this hand.
Track Name: Over The Over
Reflection - what's the point?
Moments - that's the joint.
Waxing in the moonlight
Fading out of hindsight.

Over the over no to yesterday.
Feet facing forward gazing far away.
Hands in the moment, heart a part of you.
We'll slam our sadness shut with what we do.

Correction: Hard to do.
Introspection: Part of you.
Prediction: Impossible
Resurrection: Inevitable, Inevitable, yeah.

Over the over no to yesterday.
Feet facing forward gazing far away.
Hands in the moment, heart a part of you.
We'll slam our sadness shut with what we do.

Future, coming up!
Forgiveness: Drink a cup.
Wonder: Your daily dose.
Loved ones, keep them close, keep 'em close.

Over the over no to yesterday.
Feet facing forward gazing far away.
Hands in the moment, heart a part of you.
We'll slam our sadness shut with what we do.

Children, teach 'em well
Assholes, give 'em hell
Emotions, let 'em show.
Conundrums, let 'em go. Let 'em go.

Over the over no to yesterday.
Feet facing forward gazing far away.
Hands in the moment, heart a part of you.
We'll slam our sadness shut with what we do.

When and where, I don't know.
All's fair when it's our time to go.
We get lost and we get found.
Absorb the cost, create a sound. Create our sound.

Over the over no to yesterday.
Feet facing forward gazing far away.
Hands in the moment, heart a part of you.
We'll slam our sadness shut with what we do.
