The Fine Art of Poisoning

from by JILL TRACY

  • USB Flash Drive + Digital Album

    Is the secret to eternity to be found within the confines of a miniature coffin? —Or perhaps the Jill Tracy music, filmscores, and even Nosferatu himself lurking within. This collection even comes with a tiny portable crucifix— just in case.

    The Immortal Collection includes:
    Jill Tracy's entire discography of albums and singles, the full Nosferatu FILM (F.W. Murnau) with original score by Jill Tracy and The Malcontent Orchestra! This has NEVER been offered before.
    Plus The Musical Seance collaborations with violinist Paul Mercer and the dark classical "Bela Lugosi's Dead" with Bauhaus' David J. Even the Christmas record Silver Smoke, Star of Night.
    PLUS 3 new unreleased tracks, including "The Colour of the Flame" (a Swedish 7" split with Blixa Bargeld), lots of photos, and more.
    Also included the revised Nosferatu score as an audio file. The 2002 album Into the Land of Phantoms is only "selections" from the score. But hey, you get that TOO!

    The unlocked drive is 4GB, so you can use it for your own storage!

"The Fine Art of Poisoning" manifested itself into a brilliant animated film, a collaboration with Jill Tracy and Bay Area artist Bill Domonkos that has become nothing short of a cult treasure.

The short has won over 30 film festival awards, garnered praise from the likes of Clive Barker and Guy Maddin, and continues to screen internationally.

The Fine Art of Poisoning
Words and music by Jill Tracy

it's quite an elaborate scheme
the fine art of poisoning
the dose to comatose
slyly administered

not for the frail of heart
the vengeful must play their part
a friend to the bitter end
or so they say

nice and slow
misfortune will flow

peril in the nursery
it seems a tainted pastry
one bite what a dreadful fright
she was such a delicate little dish

a pleasant parlor gathering
quicksilver concealed in a ruby ring
two lumps or three
I have always adored bergamot tea

nice and slow
misfortune will flow

but who will know?


from Diabolical Streak, released October 31, 1999
