about

Irony-free DIY synthpop duo BOO (Battery Operated Orchestra) have unleashed the third music video from their hard, dark and shiny second album Radiation. Directed and shot by the band themselves with their own hand-made visual effects. www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeLxpDlJv90

The maxi-single features remixes from Analogue Solutions, Pattern Language, Petra Black and Jan Doyle Band, as well as a brand new track from BOO. Included in the download is a PDF of bonus material including behind the scenes photos and sketches from the production of the album.

"Radiation is about taking our power back. So much of what we say and think has been transmitted to us by other people, but we can transmit right back. If matter is condensed energy then directed energy is potential matter, potential reality. Radiate."

Track Name: Radiation
Everything we touch
Everything we see
Everything we hear
is degraded

Everything we do
Everything we say
Everything we think
is transmitted

Climb the tower
Find the power
Climb the tower
Find the power
Radiation

Everything we vote
Everything we buy
Everything we eat
makes us smaller

Thinking we’re apart
Thinking we’re afraid
We know who they are
Implore them

Climb the tower

Track Name: Fairy Tale [Analogue Solutions remix]
In the darkest corner
of the outer spiral arm
Lived a race of monkeys
with a thirst for causing harm

Frightened of the sparks

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Giving birth to combustion
to chase away the dark
Plutonium out of Uranus
Frightened by the sparks

We crack your skull wide open
We're drinking in your thoughts
You crack their skulls wide open
and feed them to the dogs

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Time to end
what we've begun
Time to burn down
what you've become

In your widest deserts
we're clawing up the ground
We found an astrolabe
and a skull that's far too round
Bony fingers pointing
to the stars and far beyond
Why can't you realise that
that's where you came from

Banging the rocks together!
Frightened of the sparks
Banging the rocks together!
Frightened of the sparks

It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's just a fairy tale
It's time to set sail!

Time to end
what we've begun
Time to burn down
what you've become

Time to leave
your only sun
Time to end
what we've begun

It's just a fairytale
It's just a fairytale
Track Name: Live Rail [Jan Doyle Band remix]
One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

I see shivers - linger
Details slip between my fingers
Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable

Empty suit - shuffled paper
Broken nails - metal flavour
I see shivers - shadows linger
Details slip between my fingers

Empty suit - shuffled paper
Broken nails - metal flavour
I see shivers - shadows linger
Details slip between my fingers

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace
One minute there's no one there
The next we're face to face
And now you vanish with no trace
Trace

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks

Strip light - copper cable
Current kicks - burning sable
Motors running in the dark
Oil and dust - the smell of sparks
Track Name: I Go Invisible [Pattern Language remix]
I go invisible
under your cloak
We rock in time on the Southern line
I go invisible
release the choke-hold
Fast and slow
the monster grows

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed
Stares go through me
I'm never there

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed
Stares go through me
I'm never there

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible

Locked inside
I think you know why
Empty your head
Quit playing dead

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight
(Never there)
Don't lift your head
Go straight to bed

Safe in light
Hide in plain sight

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight

Safe in light
(Stares go through)
Hide in plain sight
(Never there)

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible

I go invisible
I go invisible
I go invisible
(Stares go through)

Stares go through
Stares go through
