Did any other man frig you?

Vancouver jangle punks Apollo Ghosts
have recorded an experimental hip-hop song using words taken from James
Joyce’s personal (and extremely sexual) letters to his wife Nora.

The rhythm section lays down a steady groove while frontman Adrian
Teacher makes his way through a series of paranoid and pornographic
questions, found sound clips and string samples flickering in the
background. At 5:56, it’s nearly twice the length of any other track
that the band has previously released, and it culminates in an extended
jam, with the instruments engulfed in a swirl of samples...
