RADIOPHRENIA JINGLES -- Jez Butler



Four jingles written and recorded for Radiophrenia. With the exception of a Moog in the first section, the only sounds to be heard are sampled household objects: a ruler, a piece of plastic tube, an electric food mixer, a cork leaving a bottle, a pan lid and a single guitar string.

You can hear more of Jez Butler and the Twelve Hour Foundation on the album "The Lighter Side of Concrete."
