* ContemptibleCover: His album ''Horse and Goat'' had to be sold with a reversible cover, with a close-up of a girl's face on the front and the real cover on the back. The first two manufacturers they went to wouldn't even print it. Not surprising, considering that the cover was done by [[LoliconAndShotacon Trevor]] [[{{Guro}} Brown]].

** Then again, when one reads interviews with Funk, he's less scary than [[DeadpanSnarker really snarky]], so it goes both ways.

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: ''Winnipeg Is A Frozen Shithole,'' an awkward enough title in its own right, contains a song titled, ''Die Winnipeg Die Die Die Fuckers Die.'' In the years between ''Greg Hates Car Culture'' and ''Making Orange Things,'' he put out a 12" titled ''Shitfuckers!!!'' and a split with US musician Stunt Rock, titled ''Fuck Canada Fuck America.'' And of course the above mentioned ''Rossz Csillag Alatt Szuletett''. It's not awkward for Hungarian speakers, of course, but for everyone ''else''...

It then holds 5/4 until 3'50", where a single 7/4 bar is followed by 7 bars of the 23/8 plus one 19/8 bar. At 4'23" there follows a sequence of 16 bars of 13/8, 8 bars of 7/4, a cycle of 3 bars of 7/4 and a bar of 15/8 (or 57/8 together), repeated twice, then 7/4 until the end."
