Shark (referencing a severed hand): You found my record, didn’t you? Now… spin it.

“The band rehearsed in your Garage #2. They were *the* band of the town, like the Conchords were for Little New Zealand, or they were planned for as such (smile). Dr. Blood planned this out with you. The owners of the new Stairs Building Gallery complained of the noise. The Knicks (variant band) said: stuff cotton in your ears you freaks, and laughed derisively. Both brothers were there. Dan camped out in the TILE Tower for quite a while, but his official place was Fleep’s Cottage. Both grew up in the House of Truth, and the brothers’ dad owned both it and the garage and possibly the land occupied by Fleep’s Cottage and the TILE Tower. What did they think of the TILE religion? I suppose they followed it. The church use to be in the SoSo Village, but was later replaced by Stairs Building #2. *Their* New Pietmond sort of evolved backwards from yours, with the X-Spot Gallery being the *last* addition. The X-Spot Gallery signaled the band’s fiscal triumph. Questions?”

bb:

How did the Knicks acquire the art of the X-Spot?

Hucka D.:

They bought it. And they also bought the art of your 10×10.

bb:

Did they know of Peter Gabriel, supposedly also in Second Life?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* They knew of the Sunklands Initiative after a while. Or at least Dr. Blood did.

bb:

And they knew of Z.

Hucka D.:

Yes. He came to town as well, although he wasn’t an official resident. I don’t think.

bb:

Maybe he was.

Hucka D.:

A possibility.

bb:

So it really looks like New Pietmond is “just” a continuation of Lion’s Roar from October. I didn’t go back there all of November, Hucka. I hope the bottles are all right.

Hucka D.:

Knicks, the name of the variant band, is a key, because you’ve compared both Lion’s Roar and New Pietmond — and also, now, Supersity just north of Frank Park — with New York City. But it’s the Kniks, without a “c”. Just looking at your type and over your shoulder and such.

bb:

Spooky. So Hucka, we’re going quite a long way in explaining who actually might have *lived* in New Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

The Kniks obviously. Do you know where the primary Knik is? It’s in… well, I’ll let you find out.

bb:

Knickerbocker is a resident of New York… knicks, then, for sure. They contacted the real world through the Tower of A. Mann, which is a type of psychic parallel of sorts to The Statue of Liberty — Lady Liberty.

Hucka D.:

Mossmen were probably also in New Pietmond. They may have come from the direction of Supersity. Mossmen are depicted in the 10×10 and in SoSo Gallery[ with its Oblong series from that overall opus].

bb:

Tower of A. Mann is obviously related to my recent Facebook post about the many Kinks’ songs ending with “man,” a number of which are now part of the Sunklands Initiative project, Hucka D. A good example is “Powerman”, a unique and rather stunning track from Lola. And this makes me think that the Tower of A. Man is the tower of Powerman, or the Tower of Power (in one incarnation of the building).

Hucka D.:

Right. Insert picture.

Sorry. Still looking…

12oz_ep013_03

Hucka D.:

Nope. But close enough. You know 12 Oz Mouse’s cardboard city is New Pietmond as well. Dead End Street, the true beginning of Carcass-1, the very first Carcass in a way, in a manner. New Pietmond is a record… now spin it.
