 +"When RRRecords asked me to do an album I said SURE! Why not? RRR wanted an album that was mostly //Hope Like a Candle// with a few cuts from //​Pro-Life//​. I called it //​Hope...//​. Nowadays, I never would allow such a thing. After all, I am a purist. To me, each album is an entity to itself... a representation of my moods based within a certain time frame. That's OK.... It's the way I operate, but looking back, the hybrid was viable as well. After all, I did both albums in the year 1984 so they are connected in some strange, magnificent way. Still, I had some fun with it: I wanted the final cut to be a lock groove of the very first recording I made as Blackhouse: The Blackhouse Hum.
 +
 +The Blackhouse hum was simply a split stereo recording of the sounds of my apartment'​s refrigerator in one channel and the sounds of my apartment'​s gas heater in the other. Simple - eh? Told ya so. But... it's a nice hum. I've used that hum in just about every Blackhouse album and CD I have ever produced. It's a beautiful hum, this Blackhouse Hum. The original LP of //Hope...// used the Blackhouse Hum for the final cut. That cut was called "30 Seconds to Infinity."​ You see, the track lasted exactly thirty seconds before it hit the lock groove. If you had an automatic turntable, the cut lasted thirty seconds until the needle/arm of the record player hit the lock groove, then it would end as the automatic arm lifted off the groove and the album ended. BUT.... if you had a manual turntable, the track would go for thirty seconds, hit the lock groove.... and then play FOREVER until you removed the turntable arm. Many people could not experience the lock groove because they had an automatic turntable. That's a shame because the lock groove HUM is rather hypnotic after a while."​

 +"This album wasn't released... it escaped. It's not subtle. It's 200% full on from the get-go. There'​s absolutely no post-production. No added effects. It's just the 4-track master. Some of the songs even have the multiple tape clicks from when I engaged the recording head on the tape. You hear all those clicks from the original performance.... popping in with feedback and echo. These segments join the tracks together. Essentially,​ it's a perfect clone of the master. It's exactly what I thought of and did at that time, including the original "​correct"​ order of the songs as they were recorded on the master tape. And it blasts. It's loud. Real loud. So loud, it's disorienting. I have no idea how it got to be so loud. I mean, I knew it would be loud, but.... Maybe it needs to come with some kind of warning sticker about losing your hearing, being disoriented or wreckin'​ your speakers. You have been warned!"​
