A seriously weird one this, culled from 3 Endgame sessions, the special bits that sounded unlike anything else we've done! This is really creepy, full of startling juxtapositions, judders, scatters and off-the-wall mixing. Just what is this music called? I've no idea, except that the "No Little Fiddler" opus was surely a symphony, with Jim playing a "phantom violin" - his quitar really, though you'd never guess!
