Further Vexations is a real successor to Radio Scarecrow. The thinking behind the predecessor is still very evident with even more bite, but there’s something about Further Vexations that lends itself to the dark club atmosphere.
Further Vexations might have taken half the time to create but still manages to maintain the same degree of meticulous detail and attention as its predecessor, and, again like Radio Scarecrow, is a complete package of tracks demanding to be listened to from start to finish.
Behind the album is a dark cynicism of the Orwellian practices being carried out by the Government and the passivity of the general public at large to let this happen. Martin Dust from tBd explains, “Our main concern was and still is the amount of personal freedoms being surrendered under the banner of “for your own safety” – CCTV, Biometrics and the World Wide Databases being the latest inventions to save us for ourselves. What is it going to take for people to wake up? How much further can the people that we’ve put into power go before something finally snaps? We’ve had enough now! We believe that people have become lazy and accepting of “beige” political parties who have realised if they stand for nothing, people will fall for anything.”
