Today's track is another one of those "what the fuck is that?" moments that happened quite often in the early 90s. Unfortunately I can't remember the last time I had one of those, either I'm getting old or nothing is that good anymore. I tell a lie the other week there when I downloaded the new Burial ep I got  goosebumps and shivers down the spine but it didn't really count as a wtfit moment as I knew what it was beforehand as I had just paid for it, but I digress.

Richard D James was responsible for quite a few wtfit?s, whether it be the tune posted, Quoth, or the disturbing video for Come To Daddy to name but three. Digeridoo was released on R&S in 1992 and for me it still sounded as mad and brilliant yesterday as it did back in the day.

Have a good weekend people.

Aphex Twin - Digeridoo

For a more soothing example of Aphex Twin's work go over to Acid Ted, where Ctel has posted a couple of classic ambient tracks by the Cornish tank driver.

Saw a copy of Quoth (clear vinyl) in the Oxfam book shop opposite GOMA in Glasgow yesterday. They were looking for £19.99. Tried to convince the old biddy behind the desk it was mis-priced and should be 1.99, but she was havin' none of it!

Anon - the clear vinyl Quoth was the release, now if it had been the black vinyl, well it would have been worth a tenner, the clear 8 quid at the most. I sometimes find Oxfam Music on Byres Rd to be terribly over priced.

Quoth is such a good track.
