Earth Leakage Trip - No Idea

multiple stories connected with this tune, too convoluted to relate, but let's just say ketamine nightmares while searchng for stray crack rocks down the back of a sofa ( not my story!, this is second hand tales of debauchery via the"techno mansions" in Kings Cross by way of the crescents in Hulme, Manchester ), forward to my brother asking for a tune ID after hearing this at a rave where people panicked after hearing the 4 hero Mr Kirk overdose sample*** ( people were crying!; they thought someone had died at the rave and it was a police announcement, true story ), and a children's record I once held in my hand ( where the "the windows are where the doors should be" sample originates from , the "mommy" sample is from Poltergeist movie ).... many layers resulting in the confusion this tune generated in the raves of 1992, first release on Moving Shadow...

( edit: maybe less confusingly, X told me that Y wanted to encapsulate their ketamine nightmare experience in sound and this was the result )

*** in case you have no clue what i'm wittering on about.....

"I'm sorry your son is dead"


4 Hero - Mr Kirk's Nightmare

people in the rave were so trolleyed that they thought this was a public service announcement

甜美的夢(Sweet Dreams )

@catalog gave me a bunch of mushrooms and I ate them this morning whilst extremely drunk and they came on a lot faster than I thought and this tune sounded amazing with the kaleidoscopic visions i was experiencing, the female voices guided me through the maze of light

Went to PO and picked up my missed deliveries today, to my surprise one of them was a record, which is weird cos, although I broke my dry spell and ordered a record the other day, that couldn't be here yet, and prior to that I had ordered nothing for ages. But when I opened it, it all became clear, I had long given up on ever seeing this record cos I ordered it in May. I couldn't even remember what it sounded like, luckily it's pretty good. Also, I was surprised to see it had two pictures of my ex-girlfriend on the sleeve. I saw pictures of her and then suddenly thought... what? And then I realised it must be Monica Vitti I guess... but it means nothing to no-one except @Mr. Tea but, particularly that first picture, is absolutely uncanny. I think I said before that one time someone showed her some pictures of Vitti and she herself thought it was her and said something like "Wait I don't remember those photos been taken" - one of the strongest resemblances I've ever seen between two random people.

This is the A-side anyhow, nice bit of fuzz (in fact there are two tunes on that side cos that one is so short)



And this is the b-side

You could have told us that you went out with a girl who looks like Monica Vitti in one sentence.

طرب

طرب - tarab is a key concept in arabic music

& also a whole entire style of east african music https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taarab which deserves its own thread

@sufi has taught me a new concept today

I originally posted this in the sudan thread, but there's about 4 people who view that, and seeing as I have had this clip on repeat for the last half hour, I feel it deserves more exposure

every so often I pull out a seven inch I didn't even realise I own and when I drop the needle I'm amazed that I had never previously egistered the majesty of the tune


Meditation - Standing On The Corner

from the initial swirl of organ I suspected I was in for a treat but then the three part harmony vocals chimed in and my soul was elevated to another level...a call to co-operation and reconciliation....we can work this out, it can't be that bad, etc.,
