Go Figure - planned album artwork
Feel No Pain - Picture Disc (Side A)

Bad Vultee is a song on the SSV album Go Figure.

It is the fourth track on the picture disc-LP and the Screw Shareholder Value bootleg-CD.

The song has a few different synth lines, some sounding rather uplifting.

Vultee was the name of an old aircraft company.

The idea of the song consisting of a lot of "measurements" is fully reminiscent of the The Sisterhood's Gift-LP song Finland Red, Egypt White.

Here on the right side, you find a still video featuring Bad Vultee for a listen to give you an impression of the sound.

There is also a very interesting article about the entire Go Figure album, the according 3-track EastWest promo-CD,

the bootlegs including their sound quality as well as some further pictures and links in the HEAVYLEATHERBLOG's

bootleg section under $crew $hareholder ¥alue : “Go Figure”.

The following two verses are phased, flanged and sped-up, so it's a little hard to hear what's being said
