Can't stop listening to it. My favourite track on the album and the best thing they've done in ages. The bit where the strings come in with the Come With Us synth at 1:58 makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

I like it. It's a nice come down to the first act of the album. Wish it were longer.

I managed to trackdown an mp3 of Michael Brownstein's spoken word track 'Geography'.

Michael Brownstein's spoken word track 'Geography'.

When he speaks on this track, those words come to life! There's a calm yet assuring feeling of bliss that overtakes me.

And it's the same feeling I get when I hear the vocals kick in on SG!

If NG gets played, I'm afraid I'm gonna get emotional. Might need a hug too.

Like I said before, this should've been the last track!

And at least twice as long.

I want Chems to make a No Geography Part II that continues where the song left off. Be like two movements that we can mix together as one if we feel like it.

Something like Justice's Phantom and Phantom 2? which can be take both as the one song?

Exactly!  :music

Perhaps they release No Geography as a single and include Part II as a b-side

think they might have an unconventional EBW version in waiting?

Doesn't sound like an EBW at all to me, but I'm very much with you guys wishing this track was longer.

Goddamn I spent like a full hour googling every variant of “Michael Brownstein Geography” once I’d put together the puzzle pieces and the best I could manage was some broken mp3 blog links and a live reading from a university archive and now the Chems track is out and it’s immediately on Soundcloud
The 60s counterculture is alive and well and they only peek their heads out when The Chemical Brothers sample them
I need the Miguel version of the album

Also you can have him proofread your work at the generous rate of $20 an hour

Haha I spent a while Googling and after a while managed to find this page which has the full Dial-A-Poem Poets album tracks available to listen or download. I figured since there is nowhwere else to readily find 'Geography' I'd put it on Soundcloud for easy access.

I'm very pleased to see others enjoy this one as much as I do. When first listening to a new album, I try to go non-stop from start to finish without interruption. It was very difficult to not immediately replay this one.

My first reaction is that this would have been a perfect closing track, but I really have to give a few more full listens before forming real opinions. But I love it, I know that.

In the Bango thread I aksed if anyone can verify a sample from Information Society's Running, and I think I hear it again here at :26.

As others have said, I feel it is over a little too soon, although it does make you come back for more...

That being said, I've done an extended mix of No Geography which you can listen to here:


Sometimes I feel like having a dessert.

I don't know if it has been already brought up here. The actor on the visuals of No Geography is Tomasz Kot - polish actor known from Cold War.

Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!
