this fire, she's like the mouth of hell:
all burning and cursing and belching billowing smoke upward to the cosmos, the fire lit deep deep down underground where the ground itself is the fuel and dirt burning embers and plumes and fumes distance measured in fathoms and we can hardly fathom devastation so wanton, unceasing, unneeding, a nightmarish landscape of life collapsing in on itself
crushed by it's own weight

so we'll trace this coal seam fire as it spits and spouts out the holy smokes that choke and enclose us with it's yellowing eyes all empty and engorged and lying in wait for the unfortunately opening doors that cast backdrafts like a spell summoning hell
Old King Coal bellows his last rebel yell with a hunger no violence can quell

Mastered by Doug Organ at Edmontone Studios, January 2017

Latcho Drom Edmonton, Alberta

Latcho Drom is a band from Edmonton that plays weird loud music about human fallibility, historical abuses of power, and the power of love. Their latest release, Whiteout, chronicles a breadth of Albertan experiences. Ride The Tempo called it "absurd but totally endearing."
