Really nice backing track!

In my opinion, the best vocal accompaniment to this track would be a
spoken voice piece, preferably with a scottish accent (think a cross
between Iggy Pop and Prolapse in their more laid-back phases, possibly
Coil). If I think of some good lyrics I will certainly have a go, but
I don't think South-Eastern UK accent is quite so up there in the cool

I'm sure there are hundreds of other ways to go with this track
though. It will be interesting to see what people come up with.
