That's what I want to see in this thread. Things like

Go on, make an old fish very happy. Skronk, squeal, honk, etc.

Don't forget this bunch!

Also, great whistling, but that's for another thread, I suppose.

Where the hell's my copy of these gals' double retrospective CD? I haven't seen it in ages. What a band!

I've never heard that one before, but that's rather bloody good indeed. Including the whistling. Perhaps the sax isn't quite wild enough for this thread, but I'll overlook that on account of quality of tune.

You're right.

This may not be either but I'll give it a try:



Lora Logic! :)

Pere Ubu had some skronky stuff on The Modern Dance, but I forget which tracks.

That stuff drives me nuts.

I like rock 'n' roll sax in old '50s stuff or bigger band stuff but that new shit drives me crazy.

I've not yet got through everything in this thread, but to see someone post a fairly obscure Clock DVA b-side here has just made my day. Absolutely awesome. And Legendary Pink Dots! Are you sure you're not me?

Sense. Only the Stooges are allowed to have horns.

I nearly added The Stooges as part of my additional post, but thought I might start getting cheesy American 80s soft-rock posted here if I opened the floodgates too wide. I'm not really thinking of it as rock n' roll sax, it's more jazz sax (preferably free-ish) blowing over a spiky post-punk number. Which is the veritable manna from heaven.

Everything on this album, though stylistically some of it is more jazz than post-punk.

Something by Cardiacs - perhaps someone who knows more about them than me could suggest a track?
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Dunno how I didn't think of The Flying Luttenbachers. Blindingly obvious, really.

Anyway, since the Ethiopiques series has been mentioned recently, here's a collaboration of elder statesmen that fits the bill.
