Astral Conversations with Toulouse Lautrec

You are about to embark on a voyage
A voyage into beyond the stars


Song Notes

According to Rick the title comes from the Stephen King book Salem’s Lot.

What asked by Kerrang in 1996 what they were thinking when they recorded the song, Mark and Rick replied:

Mark: We were recording B-sides for “Girl From Mars”, and our producer didn’t understand what we were doing at all.

Rick: He told us he’d been in the music business for 17 years, and that it just wasn’t good enough.

Mark: We fired him, but before we did, we recorded this totally noisy B-side which we knew he would totally hate.
