The Great Temptations Of Beyond by Martin Bland's Randomised Control Trials

And here is a version of one of the tracks you would find on the cd.
The point of this one was to achieve the most primitive sound possible. Some of the percussion was produced by playing various sizes of flagstones which a seems to be a most musical stone. The instrumentation was restricted to that used by the Stooges on their first lp, minus the viola because I didn't know anyone that had one.
This particular version was recorded live at Studio 1612 (I think that's the address) here in Seattle which is an arts space where boffins pedal their avant garde wares. Note urbane applause at the end. I know I did.
