"Taxidermy is the arrangement of an animal’s skin over a pre-made form in an attempt to make that arrangement look alive, and so taxidermy does traffic in acts of resurrection. But to live eternally and to live again a thing must first be dead and this is what taxidermy is. Death."

Cover songs by Alex Bleeker, Fanfarlo, Toujours, and others.
