A bit vague this but....
I'm after a recording that Ken Nordine made called Evatone sound sheets..
Well I think it was called Evatone ('tone' something???)...
I first heard it on a now defunct website called 365.com...
A website that contained some of the craziest, whacked out sounds Ive ever heard!..
If anyone can help please inbox me.. Cheers ;)
