I know absolutely nothing about Eileen Jawsin, the lady credited with this tune. Absolutely nothing. Zilch. Nada. Sweet feck all. Google is not your friend in this case.

It turns out that Eileen Jawsin is an anagram for the real source so I’ve been scratching my head trying to work this out. You will find “Eileen” and this tune on “Anagram Jam”, a compilation on the Fat City label which doesn’t really give much away in terms of who is who and what is what. Well, bar the fact that BMusic luders Andy Votel and Dom Thomas are involved and that all the artist names are anagrams.

“The names of the track sources have been also been disguised so scrabble the rabble to reveal the mixed-up monikers of your new favourite freak-funk psychedelic song smiths. All tracks are de-pipped with minimal pith and added juicy bits. Maximized, marmalised, shredded and preserved using the finest ingredients from the fruitful pastures of our pear shaped planet. The album truly is an international affair combining elements from England, Korea, Turkey, Russia, France, Israel, India, America & Spain.”

The tune itself is wonderful. Billy Lyons played it for me last week and I knew within seconds – seconds – that we were dealing with something special. Psych-folk wig-outs of this ilk are always to be treasured. As you attempt to work out who the hell this is, fall in love with the tune here
