Woo, I like this lots. Pete didn't turn up at any point in the recording 
process mysteriously claiming to be ready to do his part? no?

I don't think remixing the vocals is going to help. No I can't understand a 
word of it, but such considerations have never impaired my appreciation of 
bands like Can or the Cocteau Twins. Maybe Marcos could simply publish the 
lyrics, then we could all share in the joke?

I like the feel, personally. Although I would probably have nudged the whole 
drum track forward a tad.

Nice work Marcos!
