evening tune #1 Psychic TV - Just Drifting (midnight instrumental)

I'm gonna start posting a track a day.
(a homage to lovefingers and bumrocks perhaps?)
To start,  here is Just Drifting (in it's midnight instrumental form)
from PSYCHIC TV - a MAJOR band for me.

So much in fact, that i wrote my degree dissertation on the band - the cunning angle (you ALWAYS needed an angle when doing an art degree.), being that i had been following this band and it's mighty, mighty shaman/leader GENESIS P-ORRIDGE,

since they had emerged from the dying embers of THROBBING GRISTLE. Not knowing that everything i had heard, witnessed, danced to and taken part in was infact.. ART :)
Here's a brilliant overview from fantastic killyourpetpuppy blog, where you can also check the original vocal version, with the gentle spoke/sung voice of Genesis, oddly cold and emotional at the same time laying these words over maybe some of the most fantastic downtempo orchestartion.. ever.
but for you here is the rarer midnight instrumental.
please enjoy!
