Author Notes

[size=4]The first track off their debut EP. Cut That City features a great high energy into which alternates between 9/8 and 10/8. The part is pretty easy to listen to but very hard to play along with. There are bootlegs of this song from about 2001 where the band is just playing this section as fast as they can and it just.... ppfffssstt that's hard.[/size]
[size=4]This song is realativly short when compared to other Volta tracks, however even off their first track you can hear the sparks of what would appear on other tracks; time signature changes that would be found in Cygnus, Jon Theodore's drum-roll-crash-accents that would appear on Drunkship of Lanterns, even Omar's playing during the guitar break is like an early version of the guitar break in Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt. It's a track that dosn't get enough attention, if you like The Mars Volta you'll like this track.[/size]
[size=4]This is an upgrade from sideshows customs. A while ago I spoke to him about updating various Mars Volta Tracks. All credits for the original drum-only custom go to sideshow and ItalianStal1ion. I initially sent my guitar/bass charts to him, but I re-worked some parts and he gave me permission to release the new versions on my own.[/size]
