A Strong Wind Rattled The Hat Factory Windows - Gee!

Graeme Jefferies - Messages For the Cakekitchen (1987)

Wallowing on: Breakfast was served to the monkey by a little girl wrapped in silver and black leaves, or what the monkey assumed were leaves, having little experience with fashion. "The tea is very good with cream and the fish have acheived just the right melting consistency," said the little girl with barely a lisp. The monkey was impressed.

I Sometimes Seemed To Have Lived For 70 Or 100 Years In One Night

Opal - Happy Nightmare Baby (1987)

"The sense of space, and in the end, the sense of time, were both powerfully affected. Buildings, landscapes &c. were exhibited in proportions so vast as the bodily eye is not fitted to receive. Space swelled, and was amplified to an extent of unutterable infinity. This, however, did not disturb me so much as the vast expansion of time..."

- Thomas de Quincey, Confessions of an English Opium Eater (1821).

Punishing The Weak For Over Forty Years!

Loop - Heaven's End (1987) (LP)

Reading conspiracy novels led Monroe to investigate the history of real conspiracies, though being conspiratorial in nature, clandestine in fact, no actual information existed on such. Monroe, tired of peeing into the face of reality, began to write elaborate conspiracy novels about the lack of verifiable information regarding true conspiracies. These became very popular and led many otherwise sensible young men to their deaths.

Halloween Is Different Things To Different Folks

Au Pairs - Playing With a Different Sex (1981)

"You were always the passionate one," he said to this lovely lady monobrow, stroking fangs and fur and tail together. "And I don't care if your husband is the circus strongman, I don't care. I'm just glad that you came." Over the crest of the bigtop, the full moon rose slowly into view.

Sometimes One Must, Even If One Musn't, Hmmm?

Hüsker Dü - Eight Miles High (CD3 Single) (1984)
Hüsker Dü - Makes No Sense At All (CD3 Single) (1985)

Oh, the rapid and the revolving, the hardly and the softly, pumpkin matter greyswirl doggie-style high. It's an aphid dance for sure, Pa, down at the spaceport tonight. For sure.

Aldous Huxley Commandeered The Little Dinghy

Yung Wu - Shore Leave (1987) (LP)

Alan Watts threw a party for The Beatles but forgot to invite them, so imagine his surprise when they actually arrived, in spangles and fur, all six of them, antennae all a-quiver: Jok, Splotz, Notch, Huk, Tlik and Ringo. A good time was had by all. (Tlik likes spinach dip.)

The Walls Of Jericho Fall Again, Sideways

The Fall - Palace of Swords Reversed (1987)

Four or five or six varicolored men-like things reared up from the bathroom floor and convinced themselves of their reality by puncturing, in turn, each their neighbor's left eyeball. This done, feeling better about themselves, they made strong coffee and considered the problem of the saxophone. How to avoid it, how to avoid it?

The Beginning Of Dreams For Our Monkey Friend

Magic Hour - No Excess Is Absurd (1994)

Addendum: While the monkey enjoyed the dance, he soon tired and crept off - as monkies are wont to creep like - to find sleep in the darker, safer branches of a large tree growing from the center of the ballroom aboard the airship. Here, the silver and orange leaves gently shimmered with a music of escort and reprieve. He soon slept.

A Craved Blue Memorandum, Delivered By The High School Nurse

Plasticland - Dapper Snappings (1994)

Nothing could have prepared the snapping turtle for what it found in the oversized pink box that was henceforth to be its new and happy home, until it read the corporate memo.

What We Did While They Were Sleeping

Julian Cope - Droolian (1990)

Once the spacemen and their spacemencats and spacemendogs were soundly sleeping by the quiet riverside, we launched our long-planned and vicious attack!

They Emerge From The Hyper-Cocoon

Nice Strong Arm - Stress City (1989)

Their guitars flaming, the star sailors laid waste to the lunar doormice colony, mistaking it for another thing, a thing they feared. Afterwards, they were sad, sad that they had not destroyed the thing they feared.

The Monkey & The Madman Dance All Night

Paul Roland - Danse Macabre (1987)

Further: After leaving the eyeball thing which the monkey ascertained was a god, whatever that is, he/it stepped sideways through a door inside of a small bronze mailbox and emerged on the deck of a flying leviathan of metal and gas, just in time for a midnight masquerade.

The Contract For The Contact Lens of God

The Residents - Double Shot (CD3 Single) (1989)

Continuing: When the monkey recovered from the dreamweapon's attack and the wonderful changes in his head (which he still didn't understand), he noticed a large man(?)monkeything with an eyeball for a head and two furless woman(?)monkies squatting before him. He was naturally curious, but somewhat frightened.
