‘…sticking on just the Rickie Lee Jones spoken word [version] of ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’ over some other music. They also played a lot of abstract, cool spoken word/cut-up stuff, which seemed really impressive and weird. We were like, “F***, how did they make that?” then found out it was mainly The Tape-beatles CD [Music With Sound] which we then tracked down afterwards and used a lot ourselves. That CD had a big influence on me, which fed into the later “alien sphinx”-style shows… it was just quite arty and clever and odd, looping spoken word, and showed anything goes in radio trip-style collage. It was after that I started collecting the weirder spoken word [material], like that exorcism speech (sourced from Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth, I think) and The 500,000 Year Old Wisdom of E Yada di Shi-ite.
“I think we also played the ‘Eine Kleine Hed Music’ track for the first time on that show, which I remember was a fave of yours… the Invisible Man stuff for that, and a lot of the rest, was just done in a one man live mix, literally running round the studio, turning decks on and off! Raw but fun. Those were the days.”
