Using backwards sounds in music, a good cheap fun way of making drug addicts think you're a visionary. No matter how many times it's done I still think it's *amazin'*

The one that's in my mind is Don't Stop my the Stone Roses, it being Waterfall reversed with a few overdubs and vocals... I know they did about four of these, initally I believe, as a way of getting cheap trippy b-sides... Most of them sound better then the actual songs IMHO

Firey Furnaces are big fans of this too, Matt Friedbergers solo album Holy School Language School has loads of it going on too, in some sort of pretending it's a foriegn language sort of way

Any other notable suggestions?

I loved Deborarobed by Tyrannosaurus Rex because it's done in such a primitive way.

First half of the song, now the first half backwards. That is all.

good call, t-rex used loads of backwards guitar stuff, especially in their first few records. for example cosmic dancer, monolith etc.

is boards of canada to obvious a choice, or is this an 'indie' thread??

Reverse speech claims that during spoken languageproduction, human speakers subconsciously produce hidden messages that give insight into their inner thoughts.

dude...

what album is that Ruan?

all music is welcome, but I'm think more full on reversing of entire arrangements then weird little loops and stuff

thought it's all good dudes! Bring it on!

Anyone for the guitar solo in What's The Fequency Kenneth?

of course Prince has loads of backwards speaking bits on his songs but MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY

100 Mile High City by Ocean Colour Scene has that backwards solo/drums/etc. at the end
