Scorpion wind? Well, you don't want to be behind a scorpion when it lifts it's hind legs and drops one, it's deadly! Take an aerosol into the jungle with you, that's my advice.
The first track just rips off DeSade wholesale. It is not the oppressor that is going against nature, but the weak for fighting back, is the ethos given here. Mr Rice is trying to shock liberals again with some questionable insights on nature as some 'mother' deity with laws. Basically, he's just rattling our cages again. Later we discover that man has forgotten all about someone called Abraxas who standeth above the sun and in all probable probability is an unreal reality. That's alright then. Nature may be cruel but it can also be cuddly if you watch old repeats of 'Daktari'. What is the point of rejecting the so-called shackles of Judaea-Christian doctrine if the musical results are so joyless? This is a dreadfully boring record. Shame, because Boyd has an interesting voice and there's the odd bit of entertaining (if comic book) poetry here, especially on 'Cadaver'.
Is that Douglas P on the CD cover holding a koala? The same Mr P who was photographed with a horse's head on a stick on his 'Rose Clouds of Holocaust' album? Better take that long dreamed of trip to Auckland now, Mr Koala.
