This record by Whirlwind Wizard of the Ivories, Felix Kubin, is a testament to why he actually became famous for his organ technique at health resorts in Baderstreick in what was once the Kingdom of Czechoslovakia. Various command performances for Middle Eastern despots, misled and misleading Eastern guru-types wit de beard and members of European royalty were not enough, it seems, to save him from becoming ensnared by a number of dubious occult and satanic organisations, where he had to whip it out on his much-beloved organ until a qualified solicitor and a brief sojourn in a psychic rehab rescued him from a death worse than life. He currently spends his time acting as telepathic channel for space pioneer Urine Gagarin, who directs Felix and his organ from beyond the grave (is he dead then?), compelling him to produce works like these.
Meeuw Muzak have taken me quite by surprise with this 45RPM 7". Music for the not-quite-right-in-the-head types. I can't help but wondering just how long it would take for a swarm of remixers to gather to beat their batter if more of this were released. - Mark Poysden
The second edition of this single has a different version of Shakin' Tundra on side B.
