"Bad Octopus" could go so many ways:
- "BAD Octopus!" - a chastising statement of disappointment, i.e. what you might say when your octopus pisses on your rug, which really tied the room together...
- "Bad Octopus..." - a warning as to the spoilage/quality of octopus that someone is considering ingesting, or an explanation as to why you prevented them from doing so, ala "Bad dates" from Indiana Jones...
- An individual octopus of ignoble character & foul temperament...
- An individual octopus for whom, like the King of Pop (RIP), the whole word has to answer, right now, just to tell you (once again) that he/she is indeed dangerous and not to be trifled with...
For today, we'll go with "A crazy prog rock jam from Fishy, off B&R, with multi-instrumental assistance from XPRTNovice" - and by crazy, I mean deviant; this arrangement is all over the place, but it all holds together through the zaniness & creativity of its mastermind and the contributed talents of his collaborator.

"Bad Octopus" is a Haken/ilp0-inspired prog circus mush of two of the sillier action tunes from the game. When Andy asked me what track I wanted to do for the FFVI project, I decided to pick a few of the awkward ~45s length actiony songs that no one would want to mix and put them together. Eventually though, I realised that these two were just too silly to mix with the others, so I decided to go all-out circus mode on them. After I finished the track to my regular prog liking, I showed it to XPRTNovice who suggested we amp up the silly and thrown in a load of extra instruments you wouldn't normally find in prog. As a result, it is pretty much now beyond classification, which is fine by me! Like most of my arrangements, it blatantly reeks of someone else's music. Named after Ultros because he's awesome. Enjoy."
Circus klezmer prog rock carnival silliness, with shades of Elfman popping through at times? Sign me up! Larry writes:
"Seriously though, it's a great take on two of FF6's already zanier themes, tackled with its own quirky approach. Also, Cain, aping ilp0 was so awesome. That was a treat in-and-of-itself. :-)"
Excellent stuff that really went over-the-top with Joe's additions, this track definitely represents the more playful side of Balance and Ruin, but still brings it with the musicality and ace performances. Some of them guitar runs is purdy, piano stomps with pomp, clarinet cackles & bends, and the whole thing feels like calculated, controlled chaos of the best kind!
