From the Banishing Point/Bloom show and Metropophobia, May 6th, 1995. For this performance Bloom was myself and Anthony Sebring. Tanzil is an loose interpretation of a Viv Akauldren track that I recalled from memory when in the desert and living under the influence of the Sufi Order of the West. While it never came to be these tracks were part of a Bloom release that was to be called 'There is no god, but Allah's Intuit'.


(remembrance and interpretation of a track
by Detroit local act Viv Akauldren)

Run through the desert,
strive for days on end and
drop in the hot sun;
rise again on the western border.
Go, now I'm on my way,
finally learned the meaning of two swords in the firelight,
and now will be a great, great moment
invoking the glories of Allah!
Purify and sanctify us.


released May 6, 1995
