It's an experimental track I made in my spare time. I've used clips (sometimes repeating) from my late uncle's access television show and put them to sounds and instruments. The first few moments is a recording of the buzzing fluorescent ceiling lamp in my room and the heater whirring and clicking on and off. Other sounds include: a violin bow being dragged across electric guitar strings, a didgeridoo, a ukulele, hand-muted sleigh bells and the sound of a boot stomping on neoprene. For the full effect you gotta wear headphones.
I made up for the lack of bills in my wallet by drawing this unenthused portrait of my chum Julian (He's got a nice blog by the way). It wasn't quite presentable without a frame though so I went down into my magic basement and found a picture frame that was basically two thick slabs of glass that you sandwich a picture between. It was about four inches thick, gaudy and was from the eighties. What a Christmas.
