    Yes - It's a record. You can play it backwards and summon the future ghost of The Protagonist.
    Like the CD - you have some lyrics. In English.
    There was talk of a Martian version, but that was scrapped.

    It has two apparent sides and a 3rd extra-dimensional side that you'll need a patented Rockosmos MultiD Player to access>

    In the future
    Our Martian descendants will power their planet by mining the emotional guilt derived from pissing off and leaving the rest of us to be obliterated by a continental sized asteroid.

    Here's a comprehensive map drawn by bassist Sam Warren to illustrate the whereabouts of the mother lodes of anxiety.

    And it's generally just a cool design.

    Especially if you're into astro-orienteering.
    Which is a thing.

    It's a BLACK AND GOLD poster version of the tee shirt.

    It was drawn by Thumpermonkey bass human, Sam Warren.
    It looks like a GUI for a computer in David Lynch's 'Dune'.

about

“If you choose to ignore this email, remember that you only have a few short years to make your mark”

In 2012, following the release of Thumpermonkey’s “Sleep Furiously” album, singer Michael Woodman received a random email from a fan called Max whom, feeling an affinity with Woodman, felt obligated to share with him his revelation of the end of the world.

Woodman, initially wrote the email off as an artefact from an oddball, but in the following months he found himself beginning to think about Max’s message and the mysterious person behind it with increasing frequency. Woodman never attempted to reply to Max, and to this day, Max has never contacted Woodman again.

“Make Me Young, Etc” marks a clear evolution for Thumpermokey. Guitarist and pianist Rael Jones’s day job as a screen composer infiltrates and inflates the music into an epic cinemascope fever-dream – a backdrop to Woodman’s unique stream of consciousness vocal style, perfectly suspended in a score to a film that doesn’t exist.
“Make Me Young, etc” exists in homage to the unknown Max, and poses the question; if you knew tomorrow was the end of the world, would you be able to let go of all your regrets, and live differently for just one day?


For South London four-piece Thumpermonkey, “Make Me Young, etc” is their 8th release. The band have slowly gestated over the past decade and a half, out of Michael Woodman’s early solo bedroom writing and emerged as a fully formed band around 2006’s ”Chap With The Wings, Five Rounds Rapid“.
The six year period since 2012’s acclaimed cult album “Sleep Furiously” has resulted in two thought provoking and quite extraordinary records, 2017’s “Electricity” and 2018’s “Make Me Young, etc” certainly a career defining highlight.

“Make Me Young,etc” is released on Rockosmos on Friday 26th October 2018 – which coincides with the end of the world.
Don’t make no plans.

about

Thumpermonkey London, UK

A person in space, walking, or adrift, but safe, exploring, freedom, discovery.

A clockwork piano contraption, like a giant ballerina box, but turning a big totem pole, around which smart office dressed people slowly dance with dead glazed eyes as a slightly out of tune slow Satie-like Lydian melody loops round.

White men in pith helmets hunting large animals to extinction.

Track Name: Veldt
I don't know if I'm paralysed,
or if I'm standing still,
just in case it's perfect...
But when I try to describe the noise in this room,
words that come to me sound like entomology,
and that's when I’m furthest away
from naming it again.
One night out on the veldt,
fell into that glowing cave.
I had no idea there were such spaces in me.
I can't believe I've become fascinated again.
Nothing like I thought that it would be,
hidden in here.
Things that glow down here don't burn my skin.
Did you always know that this was in?
I'm fascinated again.
Part of me's laughing
But part of me's something that I'll never ever name.
I can't believe I've become fascinated again.
Back above the ground,
I cannot speak.
Came back minutes old,
'cos you led me here.
I would not have found this on my own.
