VARN Industries: The Lost Tracks

VARN Industries: The Lost Tracks
"This is the third and final follow-up compilation to Appendix A: 1999-2006, collecting what's left of Volume II: Stoned Age, The THC Sessions (A follow-up EP to Volume II: Stoned Age) and Volume III: Angel, as well as VARN-related tracks from the aborted
Batrick's Spy Kit EP Batrick vs. The World, Vol. I and the aborted Mark Nalley EP Forest Of Illusions, after a harddrive failure that occurred while setting up the Oak Manor Studio. Volume II: Stoned Age was recorded in 2002 with Hippie writing or co-writing most of the tracks and/or lyrics, though not all of the vocals ended up getting recorded. The concept was basically trying to make music that sounded like what smoking reefer felt like (I later adapted this theme to tripping balls on DXM at an abandoned hospital for Vol. V and tripping on an unspecified hallucinogen at a party for Vol. VIII). Three EPs were recorded to follow-up Vol. II, but only some of the tracks from the third EP survived the crash. The 0200 series (Volume II: Stoned Age, The Three Parables Of Hippie & MAN3, untitled: undated and The THC Sessions), along with their Batrick's Spy Kit counterparts (Knuckle and Fill Me Up Another Cup Of Booze) and Magitekno counterpart (Totally Baked Album), collectively represent a report on the Extended Marijuana Study held by MAN3, Magitek and Batrick with Hippie and MyKaos over the course of 2002. A seperate written report, entitled The Hippie Archives has also been compiled from this and several other marijuana studies held by Beacon Meadows between 2001 and 2006 and should one day see public release. Volume III: Angel was recorded in 2003, though the lyrics intended for it (which you can download here) were written in 2001. Its concept followed the journey of an angel sent down from Heaven to warn people of the coming apocalypse, only to fall in love with a mortal. The mortal is drafted into service because of war and is killed. The angel then becomes a deeply depressed atheist and ends up committing suicide. Cheerful stuff. Batrick vs. The World, Vol. I was an EP's worth of new remixes by Batrick of Batrick's Spy Kit, Magitekno and VARN Industries tracks recorded in 2004 that also suffered near-extinction from the hard-drive failure. At around the same time, I was also trying to get together an EP's worth of material by my dad, though only two tracks are left of that recording ("Chilling At The Lake" and a Batrick's Spy Kit track called "Forest Of Illusions (Yoshi's Egg)")."
