My original idea came from wanting to showcase Human Sexual Response, a great (albeit short-lived) Boston art punk band.
I was additionally inspired by the decadence and theatrics of post-punk, classic concept albums (The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Zen Arcade), and also narrative songs about iconic/notorious characters (John Henry, Jackie-O, Gary Gilmore).
The title comes from the Wire track, which is a pop gem about insect larva that feed on plants. Their life span is short and goes in circles and heck if I can find a better metaphor than that.
It's a mix about love, the media, and madness. Hope you enjoy!
