To my life and family.
“In 1991, the music world was in turmoil. The last of underground possibility was disappearing fast, being replaced by the ambiguity of commercial acceptance. Bands which up till then had tried to retain some artistic integrity changed their tune, and they themselves became the new standard for artistic integrity. Mayhem prevailed. Noone could sell out any more; the whole idea of selling out had sold out.
Amidst this ridiculousness, one band made a stand. The Covert Sound Philosophy was born. They had risen from the depths of rock star wannabe to the epitome of rock star irony. Everyone knew the songs; everyone wanted to get to their shows. But where were they?
Many knew, but none told. It was a true religion carved from the insides of psychedelic comedy, CSP had remained true to integrity, and their fans did too. Some of the most famous songs of the late 20th century were written by CSP, but they didn’t want credit, they were too cool. And that’s what made them the coolest band the world has ever seen. Anyone who had seen them would not admit it, and those artists who played the CSP songs vowed not to reveal who actually wrote the songs.
Topping the Sex Pistols’ hardly ironic and blatantly spiteful “The Great Rock and Roll Swindle”, CSP had succeeded where others had failed. This is why they had achieved a legendary status that no one could talk about.”Now, the Covert Sound Philosophy has broken that silence. We have for your inspection and commercialization, “The Clausal Proof”.*
