Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

M.W.K.P.A. : "Guillotine" by The Coup : Lyrics, Music, Official Video

nota bene videæ: I hope that any implied future Post-Revolutionary Terror has come away from the mistakes of the past with a wisdom and compassion that it should go without saying is, even if not from the perspective of those who think themselves big to jail, quite undeserved.

Thank you Boots.  This is just what we needed.

The whole album is this good.
