    Limited to 300 numbered copies worldwide, the 7 inch vinyl album contains a fold-out poster and lyric sheet that parodies the classic Joy Division "An Ideal For Living" EP. Featuring the tracks "Man O' Warsaw", "No Lobster Lost", "Eaters Of Fish", and "Fangtooth Failures", the sound quality is much better than the original 1978 release. Professionally recorded, mastered and mixed at Dave Klein Studios, these tracks are a must for any Joy Division fan.

Eel pike koi clown tuna fish go! I was there in the fishtank When the power went out Swam around in a panic But a fish cannot shout I grew up in the glass walls Felt aquarium safe But now I wish I had freedom Of the ocean's embrace In the sea In the sea In the sea Hung around in the coral When all the bubbles had stopped I got flushed down the toilet When I floated on top On top of the water Of the now darkened tank My fish life has ended I'm in the sewage and stank In the sea In the sea In the sea I could still hear the flushing As I swirled down the hole I Shot through the piping And out in the cold In the cold of the ocean I am dead in the sea The fish see my carcass And they will eat me In the sea In the sea In the sea Eel pike koi clown tuna fish

So long crawling here Looking for a meal Pop my head out of the sand I've been searching round This ocean floor forever Snapping claw crustacean Suddenly some bait appears Cage closes freedom disappears They'll eat ya They'll eat ya They'll eat ya Through the aquarium walls he saw the chef approaching and knew his time was up. In an instant he was lowered into a pot of scalding hot water and the lid was closed over him, boiling him alive. He shuddered crustaceously. No lobster escapes from Red Lobster... No lobster lost... No lobster lost... You've been sitting in the lobster tank forever Other lobsters stacked on you Someone picks you for a lovely Sunday meal All your nightmares coming true They suck the meat right out your shell Welcome to your lobster hell They'll eat ya They'll eat ya They'll eat ya

Hors d'oeuvres of fine caviar Geflite fish in a jar Made a promise at the buffet To eat the sushi and the fillet When you need seafood now Don't want chicken or cow And there's never a doubt That you'll order the trout Or a shrimp cocktail glass With Chilean Sea Bass Catching fish via prededation Is the grizzly bear's dietary foundation They're the sea bird's favorite dish And even fish eat other fish! Survival under the sea Is "Eat them or eat me" And you can't swim to hide In ebbs and flows of the tide Gutted, skinned, cooked, flambeed In endless seafood parades Can't resist temptation Ahi tuna adoration Smacking lips just thinking 'bout Pan fried garlic lemon trout The eaters of fish Exist in every nation The eaters of fish Including mollusks and crustaceans The eaters of fish Like battered cod and salty french fries No reluctance to partake To dip in tartar sauce and bake Pescatarian elation For fish taco salivation!

Don't think that's a dinosaur That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel Hurricane took it from the ocean floor Left it dying on a Texas shore From the family of Op-hich-thi-dae Tusky eel is its common name Blown through the violent storm Dead on the sand in its final form He no longer denies That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel It's now all covered with flies The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel Climate changes made the hurricanes Turning fishes into airplanes News story with a monster hook Click and bait we take a look What a sad fatality Desperate gaspings of the fangtooth eel Some other fish could see Mother Nature is the real deal He no longer denies That's a carcass of a fangtooth eel Now now all covered with flies The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel Now that the hurricanes past People will forget about the tusky eel Environment is only getting worse There's sure to be much more upheaval No no its not the last Rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel No no its days are past The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel The rotted carcass of a fangtooth eel
