is claimed to be the earliest release from All Lights Fucked on the Hairy Amp Drooling Canadian experimental musical collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor. According to a 1998 interview with the band, the album was published on cassette in December 1994 and limited to 33 copies. [1 ] At this point, the group consisted only of [2 ] Efrim Menuck, Mauro Pezzente, and Mike Moya. No copies of the release are known to exist and the music has been "thought to be lost forever by the band's fans". [3 ] [4 ]
When asked about the album in a 2010 interview,
Efrim Menuck stated that All Lights is a vocal rock album that bears little relation to the band's later work, and that he "keep[s] expecting it's gonna pop up [on the internet] but it never does". In another interview, Menuck stated that the album was a [5 ] 4-track recording. [6 ]
In 2013, a
Reddit user, who claimed to have purchased a copy of the tape in Moncton, New Brunswick, uploaded photographs of the cassette cover and "audio files of tracks purporting to be the final two songs on the A-side". [7 ] The user's Reddit account was deleted shortly afterwards, leading some news outlets to declare the alleged rediscovery a [8 ] hoax. [8 ]
