Last summer, “No Epiphany” was he first taste we got of Fucked Up’s The Chemistry of Common Life. As you now know, the track’s epic wall-of-sound is shared by the majority of the collection’s other ten components via the subtle, layered use of French horn, flutes, organ, guest Vivian Girls, and etc. Matador recently released a “No Epiphany” 7″, which includes a blown-out No Age remix as the B-Side. It’s a lot of fun listening to the two versions in quick succession, seeing just how buried and distended and, at times, near a cappella Dean and Randy render it. And just how great it sounds to the noisy side of my brain. Yes, epiphany.

  1. I think No Age ruined the song. Anyone else? Besides the cool factor (Dean and Randy seem like cool guys) I don’t see much value in it.

    I agree with O/P in a sense. I think the music itself is pretty neat, however the weird vocals all throughout make the song sound like it’s just chopped playing backwards. Not bad, but not great.
