Some Fool - The Pest, or The Approaching One

Regular price $12.00

No shield of wisdom or riches, nobility or prowess can protect them from the blows of the Approaching One!

Hand-dubbed cassette in a plastic case approximately the same size and color as the popular pocket version of the Divine Office/Liturgy of the Hours for Roman Catholics.

"Those of noblest rank in this world always follow their desires, enjoy being honored, take pride in social contacts, pursue litigation in the courts, feed on plunder, delight in slander, and crave ruddy-gold talents. When they seem to possess a little, they are all the more inflamed to gather more, and a heap of gold induces in them a fierce thirst to possess: as Prudentius said, 'With the massing of gold the thirst for gold increases.'
"Thus it happens that while they enjoy being pleased by the pomp and empty honors of the world, they do not remember to think of dignities that remain and do not pay attention to what is not seen, since they unjustly possess things which they think will satisfy their longings.
"But there are those who, through a greater intelligence, have released themselves from these bonds, like birds who fly out of their snares up to the sky: leaving their detested earthly possessions behind, they apply themselves with all their strength to heavenly things. Such a one was Some Fool, an inhabitant of the city of Baltimore..."
--Gregory of Tours

Pit Note: An ambitious gigantic 2 Cassette orchestral dungeon-synth album with 200 page book of metered narrative "LATTEN LEGEND LIBER I & 2". A  fantasy frighteningly derivative of Ariosto, De Troyes, and Chaucer, and probably a few more recent scribblers besides.

THIS PAGE IS ONLY FOR THE CASSETTE: "The Pest, or The Approaching One"

Described on their Some Fool's BANDCAMP page as ""the soundtrack to Walt Disney's Sword in the Stone (1963) had it been scripted by a 25-year old Paul Verhoeven"?"
