MICHAELmATICIAN’s upcoming sound unit will contain a sound piece named “Palace Algeria”. MICHAELmATICIAN has stated that Algeria is the last stronghold of the Resistance, therefore we assume the sound piece elaborates upon that. Also, “Palace Algeria” will mark the first time since 1988 that a music single has referenced Algeria (Algeria’s national anthem was released as a Christmas song in 1988). Although the people of Algeria will be extremely excited to hear the sound piece, it is likely that “Palace Algeria” will not arrive there until late next year (Algerian law states that any outside music must be translated and re-recorded before being distributed in Algeria). It is our hope that this law can be circumvented by the smuggling of used VHS tapes on which the sound piece will be recorded. MICHAELmATICIAN will likely select a local Algerian VHS favorite: Star Trek III – The Search for Spock.
Please stay tuned for “Palace Algeria” by MICHAELmATICIAN. It will be made accessible at the Jeremy Shingles Blog. If you wish to have “Palace Algeria” on your used VHS, please contact us. Finally, from the aforementioned anthem: “That we are in revolt, whether to live or to die, we are determined that Algeria should live, so be our witness, be our witness, be our witness”
