Tableau of a Lithotomy

Sort of like Carcass without guitars, drums, bass, or growled vocals. This gatefold 7" was manufactured in the '60s by the Norgine Pharmaceutical Company to promote some sort of bladder medicine that probably later was revealed to cause babies to be born with flippers or something. Brutal.

Granted, it's not an audio book, but could make for interesting listening on a long drive!

I challenge you to post a record that is more disturbing than this, Aesop. I fucking challenge you.

I just came across your blog and immediately can tell I'm going to spend a while looking through your posts. I love this description and am currently downloading the record. I eagerly await more posts and can't wait to dig through the old ones. Thanks!

Whoa...okay so I'm almost certain that the second track is a recording of French baroque composer Marin Marais' "Tableau de l'opération de la taille" but with a narrator reading the score's annotations. Fucked. Up.
