The second release on Warthog Speak offshoot, Vague Absolutes is the first physical release from VISION OFF. Best to avoid if you are looking for anything resembling "songs," Hawking the Smoke from Distant Fires is the audio equivalent of the feeling that comes from watching modern day network news, of resigning yourself to the fact that no matter where you are, you are sitting in the nest of the enemy, and the enemy has
every tool at their disposal to create your misery, profit off your misery, or both. The assembly of this release began in 2007 and was forgotten about, finally revisited and finished now, ten years later. Comes packaged in a flawlessly designed Riso printed J-card. These tapes are made to order and therefore may take a little longer than usual to send out.
*** The way Bigcartel sets up the shipping calculator, it is nearly impossible to calculate postage on orders of more than one item shipping to outside of the United States. That means that for orders of certain combinations of format / items, it is necessary to initially overcharge so as to not lose money on shipping. Sorry for this inconvenience but just last week I noticed that as it my shipping was set up, I was losing upwards of $12.00 ea in postage to non US based addresses for SEVERAL orders. For sustainability of the label, that cannot continue happening. What I am getting at, is that if you are overcharged for postage, I will issue a refund of the overpaid amount when I ship out your order. I will be checking every time. ***
