What's this for? One song is, to say the least, not representative and the other is downright inferior. EarFuzz had a g-r-e-a-t Can post some time ago. Seek and learn.

Leo - terrific question. I'll give it a go: "Musette" is for envisioning a dystopian, fascist Scotland in the year 2015. "Aspectacle" is for hearing something that rules. As to the question "What's this for" in general, i.e. "Why are we doing this?", the answer is: money and sex.
