I have been playing a CD in my car on Disc-Random-Shuffle mode for ten weeks. The CD contains close to 200 songs. I have heard all the songs once, some twice and a handful three times.
This morning, I heard something that sent a shiver down my spine, chilled my bones and momentarily froze me to the spot.
‘Spectre versus Rector’ by The Fall. This ‘song’ is a 8 minute rant from Mark E. Smith accompanied by some noise, detailing a ghostly story from the ‘Dragnet’ LP. ‘Spectre versus Rector’ sounds as if it was recorded in a bleak, industrial warehouse somewhere up North with a hand-held tape recorder.
The very last song to be selected. Spooky.
