Thanks to the credits, I found the origin of the sample "And rain comes down like tears" (at 1mn22)

Well, never heard of 140 Song (this one explicitly mentions Chemical Brothers as performers) or ROADKILL (Deconstruction mentioned as publisher too, might be old), SWIFT JUSTICE, DEEPER THROAT, SLOW BUTT GRIND, CALL ME THE BREEZE

Some of these are tracks that sample Chems tracks

Well sherlocked!

You just know that it's a recreation/re-recording for this one though. No way it's the same vocalist.

Roadkill is mentioned in post 1 of this thread, Call Me the Breeze is a Beth Orton track that Tom worked on (mentioned on the old forum) see HERE (track 5). Slow Butt Grind was an early title which WN has mentioned before, I forget what it is but you do know it. Deeper Throat is THIS

Today's news has prompted me to have a look at Mike Marsh's list (still no change since Contra/Reflexion) and the SACEM list.
And we have some new ones on there:

NEUM
Compositeur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

WE'VE GOT TO TRY
Compositeur : PEGUE RICHARD, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : PEGUE RICHARD, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

GRAVITY DROPS
Compositeur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

BANGO
Compositeur : Aurora AKSNES, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : Aurora AKSNES, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

So Aurora is on this one. No sign of a writing credit for Dinosaur L/Arthur Russell, so perhaps my prediction that there would be a sample of Dinosaur L's "Go Bang" isn't going to pan out...


NO GEOGRAPHY
Compositeur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

THE UNIVERSE SENT ME
Compositeur : Aurora AKSNES, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : Aurora AKSNES, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

Aurora again.


So we have two new Aurora song (writing/performing) confirmations to add to Eve Of Destruction. Is it three tracks in total that she sings on?
I'm surprised that EOD isn't showing on the SACEM page considerng the track has had a "world premiere".
I thought there might be some more writing credits if samples have been used more on this album (as suggested by interviews), although clearly the Helleluia Chorus sample has garnered a writing credit. I wonder if there might be an updated PRS list with more details?

Neeeum is most likely just the 15,000 bpm "remix" of We've Got to Try.

Three tracks including Aurora sounds like a bit of an overkill, knowing that the album is pretty short, but perhaps these are just credits for some vocal effects or just small sound bites instead of full lyrics.

My hype for Gravity Drops is 1000% defying the aforementioned track title.

Just over a month girls & boys!

It reminds of Junior by Royksopp where there're three tracks featuring Anneli Drecker and two tracks with Karin Dreijer.
(Robyn and Lykke Li look pathetic with just one appearance  :D)
Masterpiece album, by the way.

I used to play live a long long time ago. Even though none of our stuff was released at the time, we would register each track with APRA (Australian SACEM) with the working title, and submit a tracklist of the live set to them so we get some performance royalties.

My guess is that some of these tracks are registered for this reason - they're working titles for some of the bits performed live that don't have a release.

Another one to add to reply #28 above:

CATCH ME I'M FALLING
Compositeur : INCONNU COMPOSITEUR AUTEUR, RAYMONDE SIMON PHILIP, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, DOSEN STEPHANIE, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN
Auteur : INCONNU COMPOSITEUR AUTEUR, RAYMONDE SIMON PHILIP, OSTYN ROWLANDS THOMAS OWEN M, DOSEN STEPHANIE, SIMONS EDMUND JOHN

Stephanie Dosen gets a writing credit. As does Simon Raymonde - founder of Bella Union records (I Break Horses, Midlake, Flaming Lips - all with Chem connections), acquantance/friend of Tom, and of course former Cocteau Twin.

**EDIT**: Stephanie Dosen has also released music on Mr Raymonde's Bella Union label e.g: A Lily For The Spectre, an album which featured production and performance from Mr Raymonde. I wonder if something from her music has been sampled here?

9 out of 10 No Geography tracks listed here now. Eve Of Destruction seems to be the missing title.

A-ha! (did I miss it yesterday, or is it new today? ??? )

James Calloway and Leroy O'Neill Jackson (who I think is AKA Leroy Burgess) wrote the original 1978 version of Weekend by Phreek. The track was then covered by Class Action in 1983. Both versions involved Larry Levan and vocalist Christine Wiltshire. I believe the Chems have sampled the Class Action version.
So, comfirmation that they kept the Weekend sample in this one.
