About Rational Youth:

Formed in the early 80s by ex-Men Without Hats guitarist Tracy Howe and Bill Vorn, Rational Youth was later joined by Kevin Komoda (who went on to produce CBC's Brave New Waves and co-founded Montreal-based label Derivative). Rational Youth went on to record arguably the greatest synthpop album Canada has ever seen with Cold War Night Life for YUL Records. A national tour and 20,000 copies later, the band broke up, a new band was formed, a new album was released, only to have the band break up again in 1986. Since then, Rational Youth has been revived several times with different line-ups, each time adding something wonderful to the mix, but always rooted in Howe's knack for melody and his remarkable vocal style. The band has toured in Canada, Germany, Norway, and Sweden and has recently been invited to perform at the Tech Noir Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland.

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
