    As we drive to races, Byron and I have been listening to the new Cake CD, the last two Radiohead CDs, and the Springsteen re-issue “The Promise.”

    about 11 minutes into Tubular Bells, by mike oldfield, you run into the following (note Pink Floyd reference). This was the first album from Virgin Records, btw.

    “What comes next is one of the more unusual parts of the entire album. Timpani rolls and drum kit commence this part, highlighted by unintelligible “lyrical” utterances, growls, and screams by Oldfield (This was alleged to be a rumour, however Simon Hayworth, audio engineer, recalled that Branson was getting impatient pressurising Oldfield to deliver the cut, and flustered they drove down to London and dumped a copy of entire uncut album, and he recalled that Branson wanted vocals on one of the albums, whereas Oldfield had no intentions of doing so. Oldfield said himself in an interview that he angrily stormed out of Branson’s office yelling “You want lyrics!? I’ll give you lyrics!”.[25] He then drank half a bottle of Jameson’s whiskey and demanded the engineer to take him to the studio where, intoxicated, he “screamed his brains out for 10 minutes”. This was later used in the album in rebellion against Richard Branson’s desire to include at least one part with lyrics to release as a single).

    This is listed in the liner notes as the “Piltdown Man”. Oldfield’s yelling is countered by various phrases on piano, guitars, and the “Moribund chorus,” with this piece abruptly ending on one loud shout exactly 16:29 in.

    As expected, another quiet section ensues, a 12/8 piece mostly dominated by guitars and organ. This section gives an excellent insight into the psychedelic, spacey side of Oldfield (a similar sound to that of Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour), which would also be present in his third album, Ommadawn. After about five minutes, an optimistic organ line plays, segueing into a climactic arrangement of “Sailor’s Hornpipe”.”
