Drosophila Melanogaster or Fruit Fly, the “model organism” according to Wikipedia, “continues to be widely used for biological research in studies of genetics, physiology, microbial pathogenesis and life history evolution. It is typically used because it is an animal species that is easy to care for, breeds quickly, and lays many eggs.” (ref)

Here is track 2 Drosophila Melanogaster by The Book of Knots in Garden of Fainting Stars, on Ipecac, the record label “Making People Sick since 1999“. The album “gives dissonant sendoffs to the doomed travelers and early astronauts that plied the skies in a quest for the final frontier: Space. The imagined utopias that await them at the other end of their fantastical journeys inevitably give way to the grim realization which mankind has faced again and again: at every hopeful turn, commonplace realities await us. A vast and empty universe, stretching far beyond infinity, capable of containing the countless imaginary creatures, civilizations, and otherwise terrestrial impossibilities that inhabit our dreams, dies in the fluorescent lighting of the laundry soap aisle at WalMart. The Book Of Knots once again cast a wormless, rusty hook into the lifeless seas of the music industry, expecting to reap only sorrow.” (ref)
