Notes

Recorded at Electrical Audio while autumn fell.
U.X.O. is unexploded ordinance is landmines is cluster bombs.
All of it mixed at thee mighty Hotel2Tango during snowfall & first bloom.
09-15-00 is sept.15,2000 is Ariel Sharon surrounded by 1,000 Israeli soldiers marching in Al-Haram Ash-Sharif & provoking another intifada.
Love to; hugsam, jem, j.s., si.
Though godspeed is guilty of profiting from hateful chainstore sales, we encourage you to avoid giving money to predatory retailers and superstores. & hope still, a little resistance always maybe, stubborn tiny lights vs. clustering darkness forever ok? thankslovegodspeed

Made In Canada.

Comes in a gatefold jacket with a folded insert. Some copies may also include the Constellation catalog 1997 -2002.

Divided in four parts (sides A to D) unlike the CD which has five tracks. CD's tracks 1 and 2 are both on side A.
Sides C and D share titles, but are not the same song. Often cited as 'part 1' and 'part 2'.
Side D (track 5 on CD) apparently features some extra material that is not on the CD: the beginning has two more ambient parts before the one that is in the beginning of the CD-version.
Track D2 contains silence.
Track D3 contains a George W. Bush sampled and cut-up speech and applause.

Lacking both the groups characteristic interwoven field recordings and specifically named movements, the recording was instead described by the band as just raw, angry, dissonant, epic instrumental rock. Godspeed You Black Emperor: Canadian experimental music collective which originated in Montreal, Quebec in 1994. The group releases recordings through Constellation, an independent record label also located in Montreal. After the release of their debut album in 1997, the group toured regularly from 1998 to 2003. Their second album, 2000's Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, received great critical acclaim and has been named as one of the best albums of the decade. In 2003, the band announced an indefinite hiatus in order for members to pursue other musical interests. Black Emperor. I just wish their approach was more effective. For one, they're an instrumental band whose political message is carried out through vague and overwrought packaging which merely hints at a greater something. And their latest offering, Yanqui . is vague as ever. Unfortunately, Yanqui's tenebrous finger-pointing isn't its only shortcoming. The band has taken its naysayers' gripes to heart and done away with those moody vocal snippets that not only hinted at deeper protest, but also jolted you awake just as your mind began to wander. Black Emperor has been working on the material for Yanqui . unexploded ordnance-landmines for the past four years. Some of the material predates Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven and even Slow Riot for New Zero Kanada. Recorded with Steve Albini, the nonet that is Godspeed has issued its most mysterious recording yet.

Discussions of the Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Yanqui U.X.O. Album

This is the definitive version of the album. I've never listened to the George W Bush track until now. It's absolutely haunting, despite being a product of its time. "we encourage you to avoid giving money to predatory retailers and superstores" Well I'm glad I bought it in a local store
Daigrel
Were there multiple pressings of this? My copy has a 12.25"x12.25" piece of paper with the same art as the back cover, and I can't find any info on why exactly my copy has that
OCARO
Is it just me or does the last five minutes of "09-15-00" sound like a slow cover version of Big Star's "Holocaust"?
Drelajurus
IMO this is their best material, a very sad soundtrack of human failure.
MrRipper
IMO , your comment sums up what GSYBE are all about !!!!!!! I've always thought that when it comes to listening to their work , besides the sheer thrill n' emotion , inevitably agony n' desperation will kick in at some point , making the experience all the more "salvating" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
