Although I had posted the same Sousa quote some time ago on my blog, when I read your album title I immediately thought first of Cocteau's (brilliant) Oedipus play, La Machine Infernale and then of the original Machine Infernale, the plot of the Rue Saint-Nicaise against Napoleon. Any of the three references would be excellent material for music, methinks.

Seriously, I can't wait for this thing to hit. How about a hidden-track Sousa cover?

I'm most shocked by the fact that Sousa unabashedly embraced Darwin. Nearly twenty years before Scopes, no less. Pretty forward-thinking for his time...

I'm most shocked by the fact that Sousa unabashedly embraced Darwin.

I know -- I love the way he just casually tosses the Darwin reference in there.
