BABY'S ON BLANK FRANK(Thompson

Dave Thompson :- All instruments.

One of a themed Suite entitled 'The Correct Use Of Samples' featuring pieces constructed around samples of specific artists the Reptiles admired, in this case Eno. The samples came first and they determined the rhythms and melody. The sampler was the cheapest, nastiest one we could find and the whole exercise was our response to the cliched high end sampling of the same old list of "essential" tracks that had become almost compulsary by then in certain genres, as well as paying tribute to some of our heroes. These pieces were less spontaneous than most of our earlier work but were still completed from scratch in less than a day. It was also, as per usual a good excuse to piss about with whatever equipment was at our disposal.
