Lost track

Jungle George – the equator of her navel
Appearing in 94 on a Teenbeat fifty comp (the cover's below), this track was a real oddity of outsider music. Preset synth with exquisite word ramble from a band by the name of Jungle George (formed by a classmate of Andrew Beaujon in the early years of Teenbeat but details are mythically vague). A genuine delicacy, out of sync with the rest of the tracks on the compilation. A weird nugget shining in the gutter of musical history that like all musical genius was sadly short lived. Always hoped there was a whole album of these hobo outpourings out there somewhere, but I guess it’s easier to find a unicorn horn.

Teenbeat - Fifty
