From the ():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-3917263-1349157472-4515.jpeg.jpgback cover:
“Wreck’d us our countrie’s amok torn thru with birds thee sky’s a bruis’d unreckoning thee shore’s bled dry but tepid waters.
To bury the lead in trebl’d biss, thatch the following-
Bucket-Wire, Dung, God’s Pee
Our citie’s grace and pain a stinkin’ wind – a plague of policemen and our dreams, alit, sinking in the harbour thee onlookers’ stare.”

From the ():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-3917263-1349157503-5535.jpeg.jpgLP sleeve:
“What we brought, what we wrought, what we got”
Sides A and B were recorded at thee mighty Hotel2Tango. Sides C and D recorded in concrete jamspace and mixed at The Pines. All of it mastered at Greymarket.
All other images by Bryant or Menuck or Lemiux.

Other notes:
The artist is credited on the actual release only as "God's Pee", printed on the back cover, spine, and dust sleeve.

While noted here as sides A, B, C, D, the center labels list them respectively as sides A1, A2, B1, B2. 
The ():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-3917263-1349157518-4748.jpeg.jpgdust sleeve artwork suggests listening in the order of A1, B1, A2, B2 (or A, C, B, D) to match the CD pressing.

The YouTube video referenced in the runout groove of side D is "Once Upon a Time in Athens: The Legend of the Riot Dog", showing various photos of Loukanikos, a stray dog that was present at many protests in Greece around 2010.

Record is called Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend! on the sticker.
