Permutation (album)

Amon Tobin-Permutation.jpg
Permutation is the third studio album by Brazilian electronic music producer Amon Tobin and the second under his own name. It was released in 1998, just over a year after Bricolage. The album was a success for Tobin and found him playing sold-out shows at the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Knitting Factory in New York and the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. He went on to release Supermodified in 2000.

Tobin makes references to David Lynch films a number of times on Permutation. The song "Like Regular Chickens" contains a line of dialogue spoken in Eraserhead, while the title of the song "People Like Frank" is a line of dialogue from Blue Velvet. The song also samples a part of Angelo Badalamenti's score to that film. "Fast Eddie" is probably a reference to Lynch's Lost Highway character Mr. Eddie. On the LP edition of the album, "Melody Infringement" is added as a bonus track.
