11 – Ether

If K-Bon Theme was the angst-filled lusty screams of our hero (even if it is K-Bon) with his prize just out of reach, this follow-up is the chemically induced withdrawal into a dreamworld where the treasure is seemingly closer to being obtained.

Altgough not as polished as the remix, this original does however still have a certain atmospheric charm about it. The extra reverb on the reversed Jermaine Jackson vocals stand out particularly well with the stripped back drums.

For beat fans, the drums are in a 4 bar loop and placed in random patterns, the time signature is anyone’s guess.

The odd guitar on the intro may or may not be off an old tape of home recordings; answers on a postcard please.
