The Wednesday whistle blasted and the cling-clang activity of the #7ORION mine9 slammed to a silent halt. I jostled into the lifter and thought of the weekend ahead, knowing I would pass it as I had all the others, in the planet's gravity rooms, swilling beer, hands on the feelers, watching Electra dance.

Release Info:
The original release features black HUM lettering. It includes the Monty Python "Organ Grinder" song at the end of "Winder", and was limited to 1,000 copies. The second release features red HUM lettering, and is otherwise the same as the first. The third release features metallic bronze HUM lettering. This one has a 10th track called "Diffuse", but does not have the Monty Python track.
