Finally. After months of adjustments, the fourth Rope Cosmetology album, Spezial Gedankengefüge, has been completed. Orders will ship tomorrow.
Here's the revised running order:
101 Visit When in Sympathy (10:12)
102 Hamletmaschine (5:42)
103 I Must Mourn (5:30)
104 Otherwise She Agreed (5:36)
105 Grateful, But Some Fur (20:05)
106 All Is Lead, Corporeal (9:46)
107 Jean Heap Came Off His Pen (composite) (5:02)

202 Dirges One Ruined (5:16)
203 Visit When in Sympathy (10:46)
204 The Cortege (8:07)
205 Rope Cosmetology (2:21)
The third disc, a 45-minute DVD of various short videos shot during (and around) the April sessions, will also be included.
Thanks very much for waiting on us to finish the album. It's a collection of rehearsal recordings, so there are occasional flubs, errors, missed beats, blown notes, etc., but THIS GROUP DESTROYS and I don't think you'll mind the odd imperfect moment.
Tom, for Tim, Ryan, Feri, and Balazs.
