Firstly; that title. It’s not a new conceit: the empty page, the unnamed musical composition, the untouched canvas, or, nowadays I guess, the optimistically blinking cursor – and versions thereof – have long been employed as symbols or perverse “names” for an array of artistic projects; the metaphorical connotations of absence or “blankness” conversely saying something about the artwork so monikered.

. Album closer ‘Everything’ skits toyingly close to Peaches’ ‘F**k The Pain Away’, via Yoko Ono circa Double Fantasy, via Le Tigre, via Chain & the Gang, via Billie Holiday.
