Nice one cyrano!

So, we have:

I got Žem - at the pep boys - at the pep boys Monday
Fuzzy dice and bongos - Brody knob and spinners - chromium plate(d)
I got my dice - my ______ - my ____ - _____ ____ (pom pom) balls
Custom tuck + roll vinyl - rear suspenders heated - lowered cruising burger....

Can anyone tell me which bit of Uncle Meat the ''I got my dice - my ______ - my ____ - _____ ____ (pom pom) balls'' line corresponds to?

Setting aside the vinyl context, "toilet roll" sounds like a Briticism. I don't think I ever heard it in California (where I lived for over a quarter of a century). We'd say "toilet paper" (for an unspecified amount) or "a roll of toilet paper" (for a single roll).

'ere in 'ammersmith we call it a ''bog roll'' but mercifully cyranoDB has saved us from any further investigation of that point...

Thanks FOB

I am still not sure about "rear suspenders heated"

it looks like REER rather than rear

Heated doesn't make sense. I wonder if it is "heaped" although this doesn't really help either.

I supposed if you heated the rear suspension with a torch you could change the tension on the leaf springs causing the whole vehicle to be lowered. That is probably what this means.

lowered and cruising for burger(s) It all relates to the California car cruising scene

I can not help with the sight reading of the music.

You're right, the 3rd letter of ''rear'' is not an 'A'.....

Now I think it might say ''Geek suspenders shaped''

Just "chromium plate", there's no room for an extra syllable there.

Well... I could hum it to you... you know, it's the part that goes "la-la-la-lahhh, la-la-la-lahhh, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lalalalalaaahhhhh"...

Excellent humming! Unfortunately some of the information appears to have got lost during communication and I'm none the wiser......

I was hoping it might be something like ''The bit after they stop singing in ''The Uncle Meat Variations'' or maybe ''Starts at 01.01 in ''Uncle Meat: Main Title Theme''
I thought it might be easier to ''suss out'' the words if I knew the tune they went with....

That's fantastic! Thanks very much for taking the trouble to show me that.
I followed the notes ''up and down'' very easily (It hasn't helped me with the words though...)

Btw: Aren't The Ensemble Modern brilliant!

When are we going to get a release of the full reel of "Tango Units"??? Any speculation on the contents of those other reels? Off hand, I can't think of any Tango rhythms in Uncle Meat...but I wouldn't be surprised!

Good question.
Really like the look of those tape boxes standing together.
Next box to the Tango reels lists "ARAB", possibly a reference to "Arabesque", the earlier working title of Toads of the Short Forest.

As to "UTILITY" I have no idea.
