    Of course this lot may think it is something else
    Yep those are the definitions I saw too but I wondered if this was some particular term relating to vinyl, record label or some such.

    Andre uses it all the time and a few others do also, so I am interested to know what they think/why they use it.

    I assumed it had grown from a term to describe early garage/psych releases that might be described as 'fuzzy', to encompass any vinyl of a psych/prog/kraut bent...

    Ahhhhh, I thought with it being used by Andre that is what it might allude to.

    Somehow, I don't think Andre applies this definition to anything he does!

    To put you all out of your misery "fuzzies", or rather "fuzzy warbles", is an expression used by Alex in the Stanley Kubric film "A Clockwork Orange":


    It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.

    [While listening to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony]
    Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!

    Appy-polly-loggies. I had something of a pain in my gulliver so I had to sleep. I was not awakened when I gave orders for awakening.

    Bit cold and pointless, isn't it, my lovely? What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper. Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.



    Released in 1971 this film sits well within André's time-frame for things worthwhile.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I've heard him talking about fuzzy warbles before, so I knew exactly what it was referring to, but I couldn't be arsed explaining it - too full of vino!

    So well done...
