Rule Number Two Is The New Rule Number One

UFOverdriver - Rule Number Two Is The New Rule Number One - The Wikileaks Big Cable Dump Mix

UFOverdriver has been busy this last week working on this densely layered sound collage of mixed-media from the first week of the Wikileaks Cable Dump – a week that will be remembered as a historical battle in the history of the InfoWars…

This new remix includes music from U2, Talking Heads and Radiohead, lectures from Alan Watts and sound clips from an audiobook version of 1984, as well as numerous other clips, cuts, samples and various bits of audio debris from this first week of skirmishes in the new InfoWars…

“I’m ’round the corner from anything that’s real
I’m across the road from hope
I’m under a bridge in a rip tide
That’s taken everything I call my own

One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
Knowing, knowing

I’m on an island at a busy intersection
I can’t go forward, I can’t turn back
Can’t see the future
It’s getting away from me
I just watch the tail lights glowing

One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
One step closer to knowing
Knowing, knowing…”

and then they said…

I ain’t got no time for that now

Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock,
We blended with the crowd

We got computer, we’re tapping phone lines,
I know that ain’t allowed

We dress like students, we dress like
housewives,
Or in a suit and a tie

I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
I don’t know what I look like!

You make me shiver, I feel so tender,
We make a pretty good team

Don’t get exhausted, I’ll do some driving,
You ought to get some sleep

Get your instructions, follow directions,
Then you should change your address

Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day,
Whatever you think is best

Burned all my notebooks, what good are
Notebooks? they won’t help me survive

[Note: The rest is faded out…]

My chest is aching, burns like a furnace,
The burning keeps me alive

Try to stay healthy, physical fitness,
Don’t want to catch no disease

Try to be careful, don’t take no chances,
You better watch what you say

Information About This Mix

First mixed on November 30, 2010 and released as a short pieces called Rule Number Two Will Be Told To You In Reverse, this remix was completed on December 6, 2010 and takes a broader look at this unfolding (or continuously leaking) situation.

While the first mix was only 3:48, this new re-mix is 14:20 and contains 6 individual tracks…

Music Pieces Used:

U2 – One Step Closer (from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb)

Talking Heads – Life During Wartime (from Fear Of Music)

Radiohead – Videotape (from In Rainbows)

Radiohead – House of Cards (from In Rainbows)

Some of the material used in this sound collage (including the title) comes from an audio-cassette invitation to a party created by my friends Brian Maul, Kirk Jones (the voice saying “Rule number two will be told to you in reverse”) and Philip May back in the early 1990′s.

You can hear the complete invitation here (it’s about 30 minutes long and quite amazing…) http://onehumanbeing.com/central/2010/11/27/souvenirs-from-the-late-20th-century/

The drum loops came from the Acid Loops Universal Groove Elements, but I altered them somewhat… in the background are some strange loops from something I recorded in June of 1990, and there’s also some organ playing in there that I recorded last week for this collage.

“Hey Freethinker” – I took this sound clip from my friend’s audio-invitation, but it really comes from a group called Voice Farm
