Throughout 2016 we’ll post a bunch of songs from deep down in the vaults of the Quit Your Dayjob basement tapes. Once a month there will be some leftover ditty up for grabs. It might be from an old rehearsal demo or a live recording. Or maybe some track that didn’t make it onto an album. They might have nothing in common. Except that they are all handcrafted under the Quit Your Dayjob motto: ”Shit music for shit people”

231179 (2006)

231179Posted by Quit Your Dayjob Tue, December 22, 2015 23:31:34
First up, a song sometimes referred to as The Freak Gospel:

Do not be afraid, not one soul will be forgotten or left behind when the Army Of Freaks in the year 2016 will leave this earth and together establish a new home on a planet known as 231179

We wrote the lyrics for this when the label asked us for some words for a press release in 2005 when we were about to put out the ”Sweden We Got A Problem” LP. We had a laugh when we wrote it. And we got so inspired by the space theme that we went out and bought the blue training suits seen on the album sleeve pictures. (The suits were actual leftovers from the Swedish Airforce.) We also put the lyrics on the album cover. And then the concept was complete, in some confused Quit Your Dayjob manner...

We got quite a few emails from kids who wanted to know how to get on the ship to planet 231179. Always answered them ”when you are ready, you will know, just look for signs in the sky." They never wrote us back. I hope they’re ok.
