  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This package includes the CD, stickers, and two extremely limited edition A3 posters.

    One is the abstract image of a sperm entering an egg used for the "Cousin / Grandma" artwork. It is drawn, designed, signed and numbered by Squier Squier.
    It's available on brown or white recycled card, so please specify when ordering.

    The other poster is an enlargement of the album's intricate collage poster (minus the cumbersome recording notes, so the composition can breathe in all it's glory).
    Designed by Jade Tomlinson of Expanded Eye.

    This includes a couple of delicious Perhaps Contraption stickers (because everyone loves a sticker).

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Blimey, it's a copy of our avant-rock fuelled first LP "Sludge & Tripe" combined with the new brass-powered LP "Listening Bones" for a measly tenner.

    Both are housed in double gatefold packaging with intricate artwork and recording notes amongst the booklets and posters galore. We will throw in sticker or two for good measure...

about

The Ossicles (Business part III) is conceptual continuity from our previous album Business.

lyrics

Listening bones
Little tools
Ossicles
Move inside our,
Ears

hands are boiling,
stave is broken,
mouths are kissing...

we are walking,
business sulking,
ears are hearing...

We'll boil your hands, soothing,
you find you found again...
They are selling
Fuss and Sex
But it has no RELEVANCE
(meaning more than)

Little bones, moving
you hear you heard again...
They are selling
Gloss and tripe
But it has no ELEGANCE
(unlike listening)

Ossicles attached to ligaments,
Eardrum pushes the Hammer,
which collides with the Anvil,
which shoves the Stirrup into the nerve,

(Listen)

(listening bones
little tools
Ossicles
move inside our ears)
