"The Perfect Illusion starts here..."

Back at the beginning of Cindytalk,there was a photocopied magazine related
to their ideas and inspirations.Its title was "The Perfect Illusion Starts Here".
The contact address for the band that appeared in both vinyl versions of Camouflage Heart and on the CD was also "the perfect illusion".

Video stills from a Freeze/going into Cindytalk track,"Lullaby in Black"
(and "Quietly Burning"?).

Could Plastic Orcadian and Cinder illuminate more all this?

"Walking through darkness but having no plan"

"We are not free. And the sky can still fall on our heads..."

"'Take care to fall' was recorded in May of 1998 and originally released on cassette under the title 'There can make nothing of difference'. I intended to put it out on CD as early as 1998 or so, then got busy doing this and that and this and that and this and that... after a while it became a joke, people would ask when it was coming out and laugh.
The original title of the CD was to be 'Take care not to fall'.
Gordon Sharp was over for the Cindytalk US tour and I told him the title and he said,
'Oh, that's horrid.If you don't fall you'll never learn to fly. I changed it right then. Although I put 'Take care not to fall' on the other spine, in French, just to confuse people and give people an option to their own fate."

Take care to fall

Track 11,"...and the first time (in two sections)" contains samples from Cindytalk's
album "Wappinschaw".
The CD credits the sample wrongly for track 10.
