about

The year of 1997 was the year Brian Olson and I moved to Madison, Wisconsin, from our northern hometown of Hayward. TR0LL had already made three albums since that time; Minstrels of the Natural Language (1995), Paradox & Cheesepuffs (1996) and For the First Time, Fairy Music (1997). Previously, we only used a worn down karaoke machine to record our music...and with mono cords, at that. Living in Madison slowly changed up our equipment and style. Brian got a job working for Ward Brodt (a place where even the band Garbage shopped for their gear, among many others). His experience in that retail store, gave him an upper hand in what to look for for better equipment. Sadly...we were still broke. So, our first device for making music was nothing more than a Yamaha audio 4-track recorder and a $99 keyboard. This is where OPUS FUSS came into being. One mic, one guitar and one keyboard...all recorded on an audio 4-track. After a two year time off from our previous and last Hayward album, Opus Fuzz was finally finished in 1999, on the verge of the new millennium.

What you are hearing is the actual 4-track tape mix, funneled through LANDR Mastering and nothing more. Hence, labelled THE LANDR-TWEAK COLLECTION. As always with TR0LL albums, these downloads are all free. Opus Fuzz was a double album: Blue Disk and Orange Disk and are in no particular order to which is played first. Be sure to download both for the full effect. This album's tracks have also been switched around.

Also, there have been a few remixes throughout the years as to what songs are on the "Orange Disk", however, the tracks played on here are all from the actual Opus Fuzz recording sessions. Nothing on this LANDR-TWEAK album version has any tracks which came after 1999. Those songs, which some might be use to, will be logged in their rightful place, to the correct albums which they were laid for.

WARNING!: To all my wife's friends, who are in the music department...this is HORRIBLE STUFF. There was no musical or vocal training whatsoever when it came to TR0LL. This is not going to be pitch-perfect opera singing. You have been warned!

Enjoy,
~Michael Hasenfang

Track Name: Mystery Man
Hey you there, Mystery man, with the master plan
Hey you there, Mystery man, with the master plan

Mystery man, what you perceive? Reality?
What you see is what you get, Mystery Man.

Unraveling...
Unraveling...

Mystery Man, with the master plan, can't you understand?
Mystery Man, with the master plan, can't you understand?
It's in your hand now...
It's in your hand now...

Unraveling...
Mystery Man...
Track Name: Bumblefuckjigsaw
Join me at the flip side and we can have some tea
I can read into your palms, your palms' inside of me
Little flower, come into my mind
Come into my mind and see
Little flower come into my soul
Come into my soul set me, set me free, set me free
Join me at the flip side, set me free
I twiddle my thumbs, my mind goes blank inside of thee
I cannot whisper into my heart
You're still a mystery to me
Flower girl, come into my heart and see
Come into my soul, set me free
Set me free, little flower girl
Enter all inside of me, have some tea, at the flip side
At the flip side, at the flip side, enter all inside of me
Enter up, enter thee, enter me, enter free, set me free
Have some tea, at the flip side
Do you know what the flip side means?
It means my mind's jelly
Have some tea...

[~I can feel your kiss, so pure~]

How time moves so very slow
How time moves so very very slow
How time moves so very very very slow
How time moves so inadequately slow

Little flower girl, come into my mind and set me free
Track Name: Two More Days
Separate, necessitate, obliviate
Two more fucking days...
Two more fucking days!

"Two more days!" I said, as it came to my head.
"This feeling of dread, is dead?" I said to myself.
"Is this the end of my pain? Is this the end of not having unnamed to being someone else's bitch? Of being someone else's maid?"
And consistently trying to stake the claim.
The end is near, I feel it.
Admit it: I reel it.
Mate in it: I steal it
In the end, will you believe it?
I said "It's dead, this feeling I'm wreathing.
This feeling, this feeling of dread is dead...it's dead."

Two more days till forever
Two more days until never
Two more days till I find life better
In two more days...

I was rifting with the shit
Clinging to me shoe; a spatula
And defiance wasn't claimed
Wasn't played through
So the guest, twisted in his lies,
Burden to tragedy; what it had to be
As a sting to the side
Shout like all the creatures
Riddled with candy taste of teeth
Coming back
Coming back...

Two more days till forever
Two more days until never
Two more days till I find life better
Two more days goes on only so ever
Track Name: Don't Touch Me
Don't touch me
Don't kiss me
Don't hold me anymore
Don't thrill me
Don't chill me
Don't give to me anymore
Don't sense me
Don't own me
Don't dream of me anymore
Don't talk to me
Don't gawk at me
Don't look at me anymore

Don't touch me! I just want to be your lover!
Don't reach for me! I just want to be your lover!
Don't get close to me! I just want to be your lover!
Don't touch me! I just want to be your lover!

Don't believe me
Don't remove me
Don't cherish me anymore
Don't hope for me
Don't pray for me
Don't get on your knees anymore
Don't ask of me
Don't take of me
Don't forgive me anymore
Don't cry to me
Don't let it be
Don't free me anymore
Don't grasp me
Don't french me
Don't pay for me anymore
Don't touch me
Don't kiss me
Don't hold me anymore

The silence kills the moment
So justified, so rectified by you and me
An amour
Track Name: Less Than A Mile
Given all I had, what I needed from you
To believe that this was ever true
So much planned the future's bright
Sat and discussed underneath the starry night
Thirteen year old smile on my face
Now that charm has brought disgrace
At my reckless naive way
Would you forgive my worthless say

But I am trapped by my own design
Left to ponder on a regal time
When the world seemed fine
When I could smile
When a thousand dreams was less than a mile

I have failed, but time after time
Only to pick myself up, all the while
There they sit on their thrones
Pointing fingers at us drones
Cracking a whip with utter glee
I'm not your slave; can't you see
I want to be more than this...
Track Name: Turn Around
I made a mistake
I believed in you
I finally see the point
This lie will never come true

Why can't you believe?
That things will never be relieved
Don't you agree that things will never be?

Poison flows
Jesus knows
Shame abound
Turn around

Fuck you, asshole, when you laugh
Dark sides flow through you like it's your past
Dream of silence in you mind; that's it.
That's why you have taken over everything, completely
Now you sit at my feet, like a can of spoiled meat

Poetry, it was I

Feeling down?
Nothing sound
Fields of grey
Gone away
Track Name: Everything
Hey you there, don't you understand
Exactly what I have to say
I'm so sorry that I never had anything but dismay
I found you, my spirit, my hope, my light
In you I find everything
In you I find everything

Sometimes I feel like miles away
And Sometimes I don't know why my sky is grey
And Sometimes I lead a lie find I'm blind

Needless what I had to say, that was only just to yesterday
[than I expressed]
Wishing I would find you happy than totally depressed
But in you, my essence, my guidance, my delight
In you I find everything
In you I find everything
Without time
Without time...

Sometimes I feel like miles away
And sometimes I don't know why my sky is grey
And sometimes I leap to conclusions that I am right
And sometimes I feel so dry, when the reason has died

What I find in you
What I find
What I find in you
What I find
You are everything
You are everything to me...
Track Name: Alone
Hello Wall,

Welcome to my world. Isn't it great: the face that you see? Nothing but me, and divinity. Isn't it grand: the void of bland? Hey, look at me! I'm talking to you! Can you understand? Here's my hand. Look tonight; dressed in white, in my home, all alone

Alone in my chair
Alone without a care
Alone, wish I was there
Alone...

In my hand, are all the dreams that I never had: in my hand
It's the busy body, that I sorely, truly, crazily want so bad
And what I want is to be free, from this prison infinity
I need to live, live to need
I bleed to live, live to bleed

Alone without dread
Alone; my only friend
Alone. When will it end
Alone. Will it end?
Alone...
Track Name: Judgment Day
Come out low
Come out high
Tear the sky in front of me...

Don't you know it's what we want?
Don't you know it's what we need?
When the sky is torn apart
And the land splits into infinity

Come out low
Come out high
Split the sky in front of me...

Don't you know it's what we want?
Don't you know it's what we need?
When the sky splits apart
And the land in torn into infinity
Track Name: Symphony Of the Manic Depressive Horse Show Beauty
Ooh, you make me wanna
Make me wanna
Get up and play and I...

Ooh, you're gonna wanna
Gonna wanna
Get up and run and hide and...

Ooh, I do so wanna
Do so wanna
Be with you night and day and...

Ooh, you're gonna wanna
Gonna wanna
Make sure I'm not the one...

And I love you
And I know that you don't know me really
And I love you
And I know that you don't know me really

Manic depressive
Manic depressive
Manic depressive horse how beauty
[Ooh, you make me wanna]
Track Name: The Carpet Slides
The carpet slides beneath you feet
Dead astray from your dismay, I say
Doesn't that look like blood soaked in meat?
It's all we'll ever be...

All your surrender and all of your dismay
Are smite in dear hope, it's gone now, I'm afraid
I see your fears in your eyes
I see your tears in their isle, I say [why do you hide?]
Motherfucker this way?
Hey you, don't you remember, when the clouds and the shy were haze
Those seemingly endless days
Those seemingly endless days
I remember those days
The clouds and the haze
Don't remember those days?
The clouds and the sun and the haze

The carpet slides
Beneath your feet
At your feet
That's all we'll ever be...
Track Name: Accuasations
No time I spent was fully wasted without warning
No lie I said was truly meant "falsificating"
No tears I shed were totally from heart-broke mourning
No place I've went was incredibly satisfying

You want honesty, well, here's honesty:
There was a time when all I needed was my pack of cigarettes, a cup of coffee and the poetry I wrote. Now all I need is a cup of coffee and the poetry I wrote. It's kind of a weird establishment thing, I got going here, building my tower to nothingness. I often look around and see P.D. here and there, and pretty much everywhere, bit is it totally, fully, what I need? No. I don't think so. What I totally need is a life everyone tells me to get. What I want to tell them is that I, I found it, but it's just not here with me now.

Is this what you want? Then I think it's time you come and get it.
Here I am, here I stand, waiting, with my poetry and coffee.
The cigarettes I got rid of, I guess, a while ago
But, nonetheless, can you hear the beat?
Track Name: What Everybody Needs
What everybody needs is a new dimension
What everybody needs is a higher ascension
What everybody needs is a wide open door
What everybody needs is a chance to be more
What everybody needs is a revolution
What everybody needs is a real solution
What everybody needs is is something safe; secure
What everybody needs is a love so pure

What everybody needs is a glass of water
For the sun tends to dry us all away
What everybody needs is a real answer
For the lies that come with every day

What everybody needs is a perfect mind
What everybody needs is a true to kind
What everybody needs is broader vision
What everybody needs kill your television
What everybody needs is a rubber duck
What everybody needs is a serious fuck
What everybody needs is a chance to give it
What everybody needs is a moment to live it

What everybody needs is a promising future
That world keeps in spin without an end
What everybody needs: an ego free environment
That won't pull us in...
Track Name: What Will You Say?
Of course, it's not for me to say
But I'll speak words to you anyways
The feelings' flow out like butterflies
Your charm has caught me by surprise
Once again, I shout it out
But not your name; don't moan and pout
I'll take you this time, with some shock
So make sure that your heart's unlocked
You never spoke of memories, open lies or fantasies
So take your foot out of your mouth
I'll play along until you're out
Of all those stories that grab my ears
Shake me around, release my fears
And win my stomach's twisted snake:
All tied and bound for what you create.

It's not for me to say
But I'll let you in on it, anyway
I think you're from another world
Your ascension's higher, O' Little Girl
The only thing, I'll surely say,
Surpassing your beauty, from day to day,
Is the way you speak, it stimulates
My mind and soul, for heaven sake
You never spoke of memories, open lies or fantasies
So take your foot out of your mouth
I'll play along until you're out
Of all those stories that grab my ear
Shake me around, release my fears
And win my stomach's twisted snake:
All tied and bound for what you create.

What will you say to me?
I let it out for all to hear
For you to hear

What will you say?
What?
Track Name: My Final Prayer
Here is my prayer
Can you hear me, My Lord?
It's been a while since I talked to you, My Lord
My belief in you grows weaker, My Lord
Greed is spreading across the world, My Lord

The stars are falling, falling down
The earth I tearing, tearing apart
The air is getting, getting thin
And this is breaking, breaking my heart

Please, won't you fix it, the whole world, My Lord?
Please, can you help us, our reluctance, My Lord?
Please, will you deliver your essence, My Lord?
Please, with you nix it, to once voice, My Lord?
