I have a couple of questions regarding Lucretia.

1) I always assumed that the Floodland version was called "Lucretia" and the extended ASCOOB version was called "Lucretia My Reflection" and that they had done this to differentiate between the normal and extended versions. However, on the reissue of Floodland it is called "Lucretia My Reflection." Also on the website it's given it's "full" name.
So how come it was just called "Lucretia" on Floodland?

2) Did Andy mean to swap "direction" and "reflection" on the last chorus or was it a mistake?

a) Unless I am mistaken, mine have been with the longer title on the album.

b) What, mistakes on a Sisters release? Surprised That would never happen in 2006! Laughing Anyway, I can not read the man's mind, but I suspect that it is intentional.

c) Send replies to this thread?

I always thought that lyrics in the song 'Lucretia' referred to a Lucretia who was a Roman noblewoman and raped by the emperor Tarquin. Wasn't she supposed to have killed herself in some kind of stadium after publicly proclaiming what had happened to her. Did this have something to do with the fall of the Roman Empire? I think the 'empire down' lyric in the song seems to back this up.

This said, I read what's on '1959 and all that', but it went on about Lucretia Borgia who poisoned lots of people and doesn't seem to be the same as the persona above. I always though that Lucretia was a real 'surviving against the odds' kind of song. Anyone got any ideas?

Oh, and if you know what 'methadrine' is, I'd like to hear that too!!

Hello Elfeyth! Welcome to madness! Nice to see a non-spammer join.

As for the song-Multiple interpretability is standard equipment of Sisters products..

Methedrine is another name for methamphetamine

one part of the answer to which empire Our fearless leader! is talking about exists in wikipedia's section that Markfiend mention above Wink

i copy/paste the paragraph, you can read further details in there:

"...The drug was widely distributed across rank and division, from elite forces to tank crews and aircraft personnel. Chocolates dosed with methamphetamine were known as Fliegerschokolade ("flyer's chocolate") when given to pilots, or Panzerschokolade ("tanker's chocolate") when distributed to tank crews. From 1942 until his death in 1945, Adolf Hitler was given daily intravenous injections of methamphetamine by his personal physician, Theodor Morell,[6] as a treatment for depression and fatigue...."

"nazi-crank" -the seven-a-day to keep the sanity at bay delusional diet of toothbrush-tached illegitimate austrian house-painters of the schicklegruber clan since 1939.

still heavily used in ex-eastern bloc countris like czech rep. as a cheap way of paying the work-force when the dumpligs run out. Wink
