Extraordinary Rendition

‘When a band that doesn’t actually exist is kidnapped (“not really”) and taken to a different place, tied up (“the craft services were quite laviash, actually,”) and made to record, under threat of certain death and/or dismemberment (“they DID threaten to make Mr. X leave the band,”) an album of dissonant excess and plaintive cries for help, the result can only be called “Extraordinary Rendition” because, of course, we at invisible caterpillar records expect nothing less from our artists than complete creative freedom. After they finished recording, of course.’

— Statement of invisible caterpillar CEO Matthew Chenoweth Wright after the ransom note turns out to be a hastily scrawled forgery and DJ DeRezident turns up in Philly.
