In 1973, the Who drummer Keith Moon took fifteen horse tranquilizers and chased them with brandy before a show on the Quadrophenia tour. It was at the Cow Palace in Daly City, CA. Moon passed out soon after, during “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” It’s never been revealed, but the reason Moon was so fired up and horse pill swallowing, was that he’d been listening to Trans Am’s 1997 song “Carboforce.” Via a crack in the space-time continuum, Moon heard the song, even though it hadn’t been recorded yet. A sonic plane had ripped and shifted in the parallel multiverse, (where time is wound around a separate and chaotic ergodicity), and a vinyl pressing of Trans Am’s Surrender to the Night shot from an obelisk portal and landed on the turntable in Moon’s dressing room. While getting ready to play, Moon heard the song, became aroused, and commanded, “Someone get me some fucking horse tranquilizers, I’m fucking Keith Moon.”
Er·god·ic (adj) : of or pertaining to the condition that, in an interval of sufficient duration, a system will return to states that are closely similar to previous ones: the assumption of such a condition underlies statistical methods used in modern dynamics and atomic theory. In Moon’s case, the state he was returning to was unconsciousness, that of being unborn. Nothingness. Endlessness. Void.
A pre-existent void to which Moon returned: Where the band Trans Am rides titan machine thoroughbreds 40 hands high.
