This was designed to be Bloom’s finale and in many aspects it was. The session was recorded at Gold Sound Studios located in the infamous Patterson Building. We proceeded to lay down a most dark record. DS recorded the session with a head full of acid. He'd occasionally freak out and leave the room because we were just too damn depressing. This session was never officially released.


released October 1, 1997

Track Name: Radio Message from the Sun Goddess (Harry Crosby)
Mirror crashed
the stars gone out
day overcome by night
hear her distant shout

The clock has seizures
all now falls away
her blackness, all encompassing
she greets me with her day

The world ceases
I fall away, from I
enfolded within blackness
I’m empowered by their cries

I’ll be waiting for you,
when you are ready to come.
