Voyage to Uranus - Ted botches the lyrics while J.J.Jammer puts in an amazing series of psychedelic solos in this "Dream Beguine" tour de force. Features news soundbytes from the Voyager flyby of Uranus in January 1986.
"I have to tell you again how absolutely f*cking in awe I am when you do stuff like [Voyage to Uranus]. The speeded up Bob Ryan and others plus all the whacked out drug stuff (if only) just make the song that much more awesome." -- Keith Richmond
Wikipedia's article: The Cultural History of the Buttocks. - "Sexualization of the buttocks has occurred throughout history, especially of the female buttocks."
"It is like a barber's chair, that fits all buttocks---the pin buttock, the quatch buttock, the brawn buttock, or any buttock." -- Shakespeare
"Arcadio suffered from shoes that were too large, from his patched pants, from his female buttocks." -- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"Gorbachev sings tractors: Turnip! Buttocks!" - Milo Bloom
By: Buttocks III (J.J., Beater, Ted) Recorded: 12/22/83 Released: 12/83 Format: Random; Seemingly Dolby B, but the hiss and the "music" are virtually indistinguishable Songs: Tribute to Gang Green, Stairway to Heaven, Ode to Penalologists, Tribute to the CCCB, Foxey Lady, Purple Anus, Dazed Anus, (Side 2), Undressed Man, Tribute to WGAY, Whole Lotta Love. Listening Notes: For this recording, Ted used his patented "way too much dynamic range compression" technique. Anytime the band is silent, the noise rushes up to be louder than the band. It's like listening to the ocean crashing on the shore.
