Screaming Tree Prat Culture I feel so relaxed with you A dancing foot and a praying knee don't belong on the same leg Career of the silly thing Selling the axe to buy the wood Comfort Professional Dead Ball Asleep in the knife drawer Chicken Hilton Pretty Boffins SO Adjust the terminology It's behind you A solar rush towards a treble heaven Planet Scrape Some men remember music A suitcase full of snow globes
I will miss you when you depart I will miss you when you are no longer by my side
Do nice Do quiet When faith becomes an excuse It becomes a weapon They have an idea But don't have a clue They have an idea But don't have a clue Three wise men No they're right idiots The answer lies in tearing it down We'll that's it then The last wave And then the dark silence

Scattered Order, one of Australia's longest-lived and most consistently experimental bands has mutated once again. Now in their 40th year they continue to confound with their take on post / industrial music.

After the release of the double album "A suitcase full of snow globes" and the subsequent tour in 2017 Scattered Order (Mitch Jones, Michael Tee and Shane Fahey) took a break to pursue other music projects.

They return with a new album "Everything happened in the beginning". Recorded in their home studio over a weekend in June 2019, this album combines the spontaneity of live performance and in-the-moment composition with a new poise in production. Some listeners will recognise the spoken and direct vocal style characteristic of some of their earliest work making a welcome reappearance.

Above all, this is an album brimming with ideas about how to shift sound forward, something that has been their urgent intention since day one.

They don't make noise like that anymore.

With their assembled collection of eccentric sound tools, Scattered Order have fermented another set of dangerous sonic gases: sometimes absurdly pleasant, sometimes scarily abrasive, always multi-​layered and certainly hurtling towards a blissful destin​ation. ... more
