A bit vague this but.
I'm after a recording by Ken Nordine.
On Evatone.He talks about Evatone.
I first heard it on a now defunct website called 365days.com.
A website that contained some of the craziest, whacked out sounds Ive ever heard!
I still have a mp3 of it.
If anyone can help please inbox me.. Cheers ;)
