Robert Campin vs Christopher Schulz
With Lily I was mirthing at the Annunciation; when Gabriel comes to the virgin Mary, hands her a Lily, and requests she bare the son of God. As with a lot of Bible mythology, this token is inherited from the Greeks, wherein lilies are said to be grown from the milk of Hera’s breast and thus symbolise birth and motherhood. In the christian scenario the lily is something more abstract and virtuous. Purity. Mary is a Virgin and whats more, monogamous.
I like the idea that the lily is a censorial object. In this case it hides something more scandalous. Its hiding excited genitalia, sex, adultery. If not sex itself, then seduction at the very least. An invitation. Where as in the thousands of paintings depicting the annunciation the angel is handing a white flower to the glowing Mary (in Campin above the transaction has already occurred), in Schulz, the Lily text hides the real fertiliser; the genitalia of a mating couple. To add insult to injury, they also happen to be of the same sex.
In a lot of my tracks i like to pay homage to my place of residence. The first album, great western laymen was written on great western road. The first track from the second album Koppernikuss was written on Koppernikus straße. And this track was written at an address which contains the eponym. RZ

Man contains enough phosphorous to make ten boxes of matches, enough iron to make a nail to hang himself on, and enough water to make ten litres of tripe soup.
