De RigueurMortis, correctly italicised: De RigueurMortis or simply De Rig is a 2001 album by Australian alternative-rock group TISM (This Is Serious Mum). Initial copies of this release (dubbed the ‘Connoisseur's Edition’) include several untitled tracks and a bonus CD titled "2Pot Screama", a 41 minute "rock opera in one act". TISM have described "2Pot Screama", as "West Side Story with tourette's syndrome".

The title is taken from a line in the song "Come Back DJ, Your Record is Scratched".

The album cover is a tribute to the fantasy-themed artwork of Roger Dean, famous for his work with art rock bands such as Yes.

Album info[edit]

De RigueurMortis was intended to be under the same structure as their earlier albums, Great Truckin' Songs of the Renaissance (1988) and Hot Dogma (1990) which both had a large number of tracks, most of which were snippets of other recordings or diatribes. This album did indeed follow that same structure, but only the tracks which were actual songs were listed on the album's release. The rest, although originally being untitled, have since their titles listed via Internet music information providers. However, upon the re-release of the album onto digital music service iTunes, the unlisted tracks were finally given 'official' names.

The censored name in the final track, 'BFW', is Kylie Minogue. At the time of the album's release, both TISM and Kylie Minogue were label mates on Festival Mushroom Records. The track was censored at the record companies insistence.

Initial copies of De Rigueurmortis contained a bonus disc, 2Pot Screama. It was a 41 minute rock opera in one act. The main villain of the opera is Peter Reith, however his name was beeped out of the album due to possible defamation concerns owing to his portrayal in the album as a Satan-like figure. It was originally intended to be a B-side to the "If You're Not Famous at Fourteen, You're Finished" single before the single was cancelled and deleted. The libretto was available from TISM's website at the time.

The track has since been made available as a bonus song with the 2009 iTunes release.

In a video available from TISM's website at the time showing the recording process, the band can be seen listening to the Overture, except Ron Hitler-Barassi yells about wankers over the top. This means that the Overture could have possibly been a different track, then later in the process became part of 2Pot Screama.

Tracklist[edit]

Please note that the album appears on the CD as one track; the individual "scenes" are separated by silence.

No. Title Length
1. "Overture"   3:43
2. "Scene 1"   8:51
3. "Scene 2"   6:07
4. "Scene 3"   4:01
5. "Scene 4"   7:56
6. "Scene 5"   8:49
7. "Outro"   1:06
