Andy Partridge - Fuzzy Warbles 1dotdot
artworkAndy Partridge (XTC) has issued two CD's of demos and weirdness, some of which is clever and cool, and some of which is just mindless screwing around. There is on instrumental here that you might find interesting, but surely is not the "surf instrumental" it was heralded to be on Cowabunga. It's much more in the Joe Meek vein.

Near Surf (Instrumental)

This is very strange psychedelic space song with an early surfable lead guitar line. It is clearly not a surf instrumental, but it has a surfable melody line and an eerily aquatic space sound, like what Joe Meek might have dabbled in had he survived his own hand. More interesting than cool, and definitely on the tweaky side.
