THE OFF-WHITE ALBUM AS RE-IMAGINED IN THE HEAD
Caleb Selah Presents The Fuck You Sound 67

The Off-White Album by The Fuck You Sound featuring Leslie Horseman:In 1969, the Apple Corporations secret military wing met in the secretunderground bunker, hewn out of the earth, 200 feet below Kinfauns,George Harrison’s maximum security bungalow in Esher. With theirdemise now imminent, the four Beatles sat in stoney silence as their highsecurity clearance science team—tongues removed on employment t prevent disclosing Fab Secrets—informed John, Paul, George andRingotron* that an alien life force had been detected during a routine sweep of an obscure sector of the galaxy.This was just what the Beatles had been quietly hoping for since 1966 when Reg Presley of The Troggs had drunkenly told them about the alien visitors he’d met in a barn in Penge, three months previously. With immediate effect, the Fab Four initiated Operation Lady Madonna and the Apple office roof split asunder to reveal the world’s most powerful lazerradio- scope, a device specially built by Magic Alex & The Beatles. Its purpose? To send their music to  other worlds to spread galactic peace and defeat Meanies et al…. Now, it is 2034 and the Beatles are long dead. Their remains preserved in the Beatlecropolis in Liverpool for eternity and the signal has bounced back, distorted by stellar energy fields and the gravitational forces of a million mega-suns. This is the result, warped by light speed and cosmic radiation.
