Black Sabbath- Behind the Wall of Spock (1975)

Part of the "Metallic" codecs encountered of late, this seems to be one of their earliest incarnations.. Whether or not this group can be considered the genre's creator remains a contentious debate onboard. The "accident" regarding their Tony Iommi's hand with the resulting "down-tuning" and the group's early use of the tritone, are nonetheless strong examples of This Variation's uniqueness. In all other Variations they kept the name "Earth" and created Disco in late 1974. This soundboard recording is believed to have been made by one of our operatives from their Asbury Convention Hall, N.J., August 06, 1975 on the Sabotage Tour.

Violence - Eternal Nightmare (Mechanix, 1988)

Brash, Tinged, even "Metallic" codecs have entered our sphere as of late. One recently unshakable frequency has invaded our universal disruptive force scanning technology. A quick trip to the information portals engaged the quickening of our reflexes.

Dick Gregory- In Living Black and White / East and West (1961)

One of the reasons this Variation was considered for Redundancy was its failure to elect their Richard Claxton Gregory for President of the United States of America in 1968. Unlike other Variations, this one we are orbiting presently did not progress in the same way as the others. These vinyl testaments subverted the skin-color-transgressions of the times with something they lightly call "comedy." Other Variations understood this purveyor of it, accurately, to be their soothsayer.

Grant Morrison & Frank Quitely- Flex Mentallo #1-4 (Vertigo, 1996)

Because of this work in particular, their Morrison is believed by most on-board this vessel to have had an "episode" prior to his "Kathmandu experience". The reason for the long delay in its post is due to the concerted efforts under this ship's direction to decode these tomes to determine their "projected revelations" and intentions involving turning their Pentagon™ into a circle. Its posting answers the question of our concern to its consequences here.

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien read by Nicol Williamson (Argo Records, 1974)

Twisting and turning our oscillators we were able to latch onto the 3 1/2 hour production read by Nicol Williamson [said to be among the favorite by Tolken scholars]. And indeed the performance was fascinating as accents drive the separation in characters. Information on the actor is available through this sometimes unreliable frequency here.
