Vertical Cat Heaven
- Words: Ron Nachmann

What is there to say about a tune made up of a huge harp vamp that seems lifted straight out of the intro to "Boogie Nights" slathered over a buzzy, orchestral synth bassline and a proto-drum & bass rhythm? "Hell," that's what, which is the fitting title of the grunge/Electro/jazz flipside of this masterpiece of beat-geekery. "Shut the fuck up, will ya?" crows the vocal sample in "Hell"'s breakdown, and we couldn't agree less.
