The cave

Ok, here's a brand-new mix that I think you'll enjoy. It features two seven-inches I recently acquired that I'd been trying to find for years. Gary "Spider" Webb's "the Cave" is one of the most bizarre records ever made. Both sides consist of teens, Julie and Jimmy stumbling around in a cave calling each other's name over a reverb-drenched surf-jam. Pure genius. I don't really know anything about Gary Webb. I'm pretty sure he was a session musician and he's got another 45 out ("drum city"), though unfortunately, I've never heard it. "The Cave" was released by Bamboo Records (I'm guessing) in the early sixties.

Ray Cathode's "Time Beat" is a record put out by a pre-Beatles George Martin on the Parlophone Label in 1962. Credited to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, "Time Beat" mixes experimental electronic effects with a minimalist George Martin arrangement,
It vaguely reminds me Ferrante and Tiecher's prepared piano records. the Tornados' "Jungle Fever" is of course the b-side to the Joe Meek classic, "Telstar."
