Atoms For Peace – Judge Jury And Executioner

I collected as many of these limited edition, embossed 12″ LP singles from the (amazing) Amok album as I could.

Because awesome.

Judge Jury And Executioner b/w S.A.D. (non-album track).

Honestly, I don’t know how S.A.D. didn’t get on the album. Ah well.

      Live long and prosper, indeed! That’s a great association. For me, I think of Thom Yorke and Flea together, first, then the actual reason for the band’s name*, second, and now I want to think of Spock too!

      * The name is taken from a song title from The Eraser, which in turn references a 1953 speech by American President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

      “Atoms for Peace” was the title of a speech delivered by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower to the UN General Assembly in New York City on December 8, 1953.

      I feel impelled to speak today in a language that in a sense is new – one which I, who have spent so much of my life in the military profession, would have preferred never to use. That new language is the language of atomic warfare.[1]

      The United States then launched an “Atoms for Peace” program that supplied equipment and information to schools, hospitals, and research institutions within the U.S. and throughout the world. The first nuclear reactors in Israel[2] and Pakistan in Islamabad were built under the program by American Machine and Foundry, a company more commonly known as a major manufacturer of bowling equipment.”
