But it won't if you cook it

This was recorded in 1983 in my bedroom at 69 Allston St. Allston MA. I had just bought a Fostex A8 tape deck and was hot to get something done, but I didn't have a band or a studio. The rhythm track is an alarm clock. I put a microphone in front of the alarm clock and plugged the mic into an old Heathkit guitar amp, and then recorded the amp. The lyrics are me just reading labels off the recording gear.
I was at a friends house for lunch one afternoon and he yelled out from the kitchen: "Hey Dave, the rice is moving!" I thought about this for a moment and shouted back: "So cook it. It'll stop moving." When I had recorded the chorus I turned the tape over on the deck and recorded reverb from the vocal track. When the tape was played back in the right direction again, I got the very cool "backwards reverb effect". Not bad for a 19 year old in a bedroom studio!
