An Introduction to EVP
EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) are, as the more Sky Living-friendly amongst you may know, mysterious voices that appear on tape recordings. Many believe they are the voices of the dead. There are other more boring explanations such as stray radio transmissions and mis-identification of ambient noise, but let us not dwell on these here. This is a collection of EVP recordings by Raymond Cass, who, we are told, has since been diverted from his collecting of EVPs by 'wine, women and song'. Hear the dead say things like 'put it on ice and I'll mend your feet' and 'where's Mable'!' Even Elvis and Philip Larkin get in on the act. And be sure to stick around until the end to hear the source of a very famous sample.
