From Lance's original J Church website: "Whew, our first full-length album. One night after work I went out with Gardner's sister and some other friends and went drinking. We mixed shots with Anchor Steams from 5.00pm until about 3.00am when I stumbled out of the apartment we were at to get some fresh air. I was so loaded, I couldn't figure out how to get back in so I tried to get home. I woke up at 6.00am in a doorway at Van Ness and Market in a pool of my own vomit. I ran home, took a shower and went straight to the studio to record my vocals. And Tim Yo says we aren't punk...

"The front cover was a painting Brendan did of Prometheus meeting Quetzalcoatl in hell. Well, it made sense to him..."

The bonus tracks on the CD are taken from the She Has No Control 7". Some CDs were mispressed with music by the Danielson Famile - the album Tell Another Joke At The Ol' Choppin' Block.

Quetzalcoatl was the chief god of the Toltecs, the 'plumed serpent', who was later assimilated into other Central American religions of the pre-Spanish Conquest era. His acolytes believed that he required regular human and animal sacrifces. He generally took the form of a flying snake and there's a great '70s b-movie called Q: The Winged Serpent, where he's summoned to New York by magic and picks off people from the tops of skyscrapers. In Greek myth, Prometheus stole the gift of fire from the gods and gave it to mankind. As punishment he was chained to a rock in the Caucasus mountains and a giant eagle would visit him daily and eat his liver, which would regrow every night. Religion makes people believe the strangest things...
