Notes

Housed in a tipped-on heavyweight gatefold jacket printed in full color with spot-metallic ink and spot-matte varnish. The LP is pressed on 180g vinyl and housed in a 4-color printed dust sleeve with a center hole cut to display the record label on either side. The 7" is housed in a printed dust sleeve. Includes a folded 12" x 48" poster (printed in full color on both sides) featuring a collage of film stills specially photographed and captured from the GY!BE live 16mm projections and a download code card to be used from 15th October 2012.

From the back cover:
“Wreck’d us our countrie’s amok torn thru with birds thee sky’s a bruis’d unreckoning thee shore’s bled dry but tepid waters.
To bury the lead in trebl’d biss, thatch the following-
Bucket-Wire, Dung, God’s Pee
(decant-incant-recant)
Our citie’s grace and pain a stinkin’ wind – a plague of policemen and our dreams, alit, sinking in the harbour thee onlookers’ stare.”

From the LP sleeve:
“What we brought, what we wrought, what we got”
Sides A and B were recorded at thee mighty Hotel2Tango. Sides C and D recorded in concrete jamspace and mixed at The Pines. All of it mastered at Greymarket.
All other images by Bryant or Menuck or Lemiux.

Other notes:
The artist is credited on the actual release only as "God's Pee", printed on the back cover, spine, and dust sleeve. Some copies have "Godspeed You! Black Emperor" printed on a front-cover sticker.

While noted here as sides A, B, C, D, the center labels list them respectively as sides A1, A2, B1, B2.
The dust sleeve artwork suggests listening in the order of A1, B1, A2, B2 (or A, C, B, D) to match the CD pressing.

The YouTube video referenced in the runout groove of side D is "Once Upon a Time in Athens: The Legend of the Riot Dog", showing various photos of Loukanikos, a stray dog that was present at many protests in Greece around 2010.
