Godhead Revisited

from Vile Bodies by Nico Fantasy

about

Evelyn Waugh’s most famous novel is Brideshead Revisited, a great work that combines a look at English aristocracy, the place of Catholicism in British culture, and an overt and shockingly explicit homosexual relationship between the protagonist and his best friend.

The Godhead, in Judaism and Christianity, represents the unknowable nature and breadth of God’s divinity. It calls even something like the Holy Trinity into question, the idea that God is so vast that He cannot be quantified even if a trilateral, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient being.

So what is Christianity, now? What is it to me? Is my self my sex self?

I also wanted to call something on this album “Cockhead Revisited” so please thank me for not doing that.

from Vile Bodies, released October 14, 2018
xcerpts from the SATB + harp version of Benjamin Britten’s “There is no rose”, a movement from his Ceremony of Carols. The text is drawn from a medieval poem exhorting the immaculate conception of Mary, and how her own brush with divinity allows the completion the Trinity, the fulfillment of God’s corporeality. Her veneration and place in Christian theology remains a deep divide between Christian sects, but she remains a critical foundational element in Christianity.

Several stems included were scrubbed from music by master disco producer and film scorer Giorgio Moroder

There are many dialogue samples, including one from Jim Jones, he of The People’s Temple and Jonestown mass-suicide.
