I am desperately hoping he's going to do a full album with this sort of 
stuff. At first you may indeed think it is rubbish, a pile of garbage sounds, 
but it is not. It is genius. It has a lot of logic in it.

Btw, a friend of mine says My Teapot consists of only _one_ sound. I'm not
convinced yet, and find it difficult to believe (I have the CD, not the 
vinyl version and no sampler to analyse and play around with the sound), but I 
know that when my friend says that sort of things he's usually right. What do 
others here think about this? Could it be possible?

Greets,
	Lawrence
