Zygote Mother

from Soundtracks by Martin Cradick



Written around a loop that was the first music I ever wrote back in 1979. Originally I performed it Live with "Andy Mason's Lifeband". Andy Mason was an extraordinary performer who persuaded me to perform a gig the day after their first ever rehearsal. Described by one of my friends as "the strangest of the sane", Andy recited strange lyrics about his "Zygote Mother" over this same riff, before playing his unique drumkit while I improvised over his driving rhythms. Sadly I have no recordings from this time (or maybe its just as well!)
