The project began in March 2007, when Important Records asked me for a To Live and Shave in L.A. album. I assembled a 33-minute collage of “Noon and Eternity” outtakes and, with the swarthy assistance of Graham Moore, sent copies to fellow artists we admired. Along the way, Important became less so, their bottom line ruptured by too many ambient-industrial beer coasters. MonotypeRec stepped up after Jakub and I met in Warsaw in 2008. By 2010, we had a final tracklisting. The creation of the artwork and a host of other unavoidable delays shoved us to the back of the release queue. Now, five years and ten months later, copies of “The Grief That Shrieked to Multiply” are resting contentedly on our guestroom carpet. Good fucking things come to those who interminably wait… – Tom Smith
