Andy Partridge - Take Away / The Lure of Salvage (1980)


"This used to be some XTC records. It is now a collection of tracks that have been electronically processed/shattered and layered with other sounds or lyrical pieces. All initial sound by XTC. Additional sound/lyrics by Andy Partridge. Put and take by John Leckie and Andy Partridge on 10/10/79. Alan Jakoby was the tapir. Destructed/constructed at Regents Park Recording Company. If you liked Go+ then this record weighs approximately the same amount."

I mean, you could do that. If it's what you want to do, and it's how you want those songs to sound, I mean, they're your songs, and they're not mine, they're yours, your songs, your percussion, your percussion shattered, your songs destructed to the sound of shattered percussion, I always liked your percussion, even when it wasn't shattered and hearing it shattered freaks me out a little bit, and they're your songs and it's how you want them to sound so I'm not complaining, I wouldn't do that, they're your songs, not mine, so I wouldn't do that, I mean, you could do that, if it's what you want to do, and you did do that, it's what you wanted to do, and I respect it, I respect you, your label must've freaked, and your fans must've freaked, and here I am freaking too. Fuck.
