Winner of the Ministry – Psalm 69 Remake Contest is ….


Brian of Euphonic Dissonance with news on the results of the Ministry|Tunecore|Fix – Remake Psalm 69 Contest ….

The winners for the Ministry|Tunecore|Fix – Remake Psalm 69 Contest have been announced and sorry to say it’s not Euphonic Dissonance. Yeah, I know –  bummer huh? It’s okay though. We were so excited to be able to work on the music of this impressive industrial rock band. Ministry defines industrial rock and we can’t wait to see the new documentary movie when it comes out in theaters.

69 Psalmpled | Voltergeist

So who won? The prize – be featured on Fix: The Ministry Movie soundtrack  — goes to  — BOTH Deadly Apples from Canada and Voltergeist from Scotland. Wow, we only expected one band to win but they throw us this crazy curveball. Two bands will be featured on the album. Voltergeist’s take on the song is titled 69 Psalmpled. This half-time dub stomper will lull you off into a world where the sheeple happily accept their fate. It’s quite an entrancingly dark track. Great work Voltergeist.

Unfortunately, at the time of posting this blog – I’ve been unable to find Deadly Apples version of the song anywhere on the internet. Please leave a comment if you know the location of their song.

Don’t fret Euphonic Dissonance fans – the life of our version of the song is far from over. I felt rushed in creating the mix of this song because we waited until the last minute and were up against a deadline. I think the song can be vastly improved and maybe included on the upcoming Tech Messiah album. Wouldn’t that be cool? Or perhaps re-released when the FIX movie comes out. Also cool. Who knows what will happen but you can expect to hear this song again and it will improve. Psalm 69 – ReWired Sheep may still find a higher place in the progressive industrial works of Euphonic Dissonance. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Feb15, 2011 – Tunecore has posted a blog on the winners and there is a link to the Deadly Apples version of the song there. CLICK HERE to check it out.

So Proud To Live in Oklahoma – Now That FLAMING LIPS “Do You Realize” is state song

by on May.16, 2009, under MUSIC, POLITICS

I couldn’t possibly be more proud to live in Oklahoma than I am right now. For once this ass backwards state has shown an amazing amount of class. Governor Brad Henry – I would like to buy you a beer.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

Thank you for not making those of us that live in this great state of Oklahoma look like the bunch of redneck dumb asses …. even though we really are. Way to step up and show some balls Mister Henry.

So here’s the deal…..I’m a little late getting to this story but I feel it needs to be told. Straight up……I love the Flaming Lips. I must admit I am only recently a fan. It took ten albums before I really enjoyed a Lips album all the way through but their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a work of indie rock genius.

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Wayne Coyne and band mates have created a masterpiece in this lp and if you haven’t heard it you need to go out and get it immediately. Oh…and if you live in Oklahoma and you don’t own this album then you are nothing more than a commie bastard!!! That’s right….you’re a communist.

You see…..some of us round these parts are still a bit concerned about them there communists.

The following article from the Reuters UK website should explain what the hell I’m babbling on about.

Flaming Lips prepare for Oklahoma honor

By John Benson

CLEVELAND (Billboard) – After weeks of controversy and uncertainty, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry is scheduled to sign an executive order Tuesday (April 28) that names the Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” as the official rock song of Oklahoma.

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told that the experience has been alternately exciting and disappointing, and, in quintessential Lips fashion, always surreal.

“It just seemed to me the whole thing was absurd to begin with, and now it even becomes more absurd,” Coyne said. “Now I really feel like it’s something worth fighting for because I don’t want people to just think, ‘Oh, Oklahoma is this backward state as we suspected.'”

The Oklahoma City band has watched as its popular song (from 2002’s “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”) won an Internet contest for best Sooner State rock song — over tracks by The All-American Rejects, Leon Russell and The Call. Over the course of a month, the Oklahoma state senate passed a measure to officially name the song the state’s rock anthem, and then the state House of Representatives rejected it because band member Michael Ivins wore a T-shirt adorned with the image of a hammer and sickle, a Communist symbol.

“You know, when it happened a couple of months back, that seemed surreal … and then when all of this (controversy) started, I think everybody’s knee-jerk reaction in the beginning was, ‘Ah, we knew it was too good to be true. That’s more of the Oklahoma we thought we were dealing with,'” Coyne said. “But it’s not true, and I think that’s the main reason I wanted to make sure I got to say something about it.

“I don’t think we’re battling against what we feel is like a backwards mentality here. It’s really just a few religious wackos that think they can tell everybody what to do. It’s not even, to me, (a matter of) Democrats versus Republicans. It’s really just a couple of these small-minded guys who are the most popular guys in their church and their little small towns. In some ways it’s so absurd, it can only make us look good and them look stupid.”

For Coyne, the best part of the ordeal is Gov. Henry’s veto of the House’s rejection of the contest results.

“There are a lot of other great things that are happening in Oklahoma,” Coyne said. “And you know for the governor to stand up and veto it and be on our side, it’s such a great story in the end.”

Coyne hinted that the band has one more wrinkle planned for Tuesday’s ceremony, when Henry will sign the executive order at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City.

“I think we’ll print up a couple of thousand of these (hammer-and-sickle) T-shirts, and everybody who comes to this thing will be wearing one,” Coyne said. “We’ll see if we can get the governor to wear one too.”

I’m just a bit upset that Hanson’s “MMM Bop” wasn’t considered. What’s up with that?
