Delia Derbyshire - Pot Au Feu

Delia Derbyshire doing "Pot Au Feu." Recorded in 1968 and released on BBC Radiophonic Music (1971). Someone on the wiki site helpfully notes:

This is three minutes and nineteen seconds of paranoia, virtually a rave track circa 1991 in its structure; a stattering, pounding teleprinter-paced bassline worthy of Timbaland as the tension builds, then a moment of chaos and crisis, an alarm-bell of a book recalling the 'panic/excitement' lines so prevalent in early 90s hardcore.

Pot-au-feu is a French beef stew but that's not really relevant.

70s thriller much?

Yeah, she's actually a pretty major figure in the history of early electronic music.
