taking the piss

"Piers Headley is co-owner of Markthalle (a bar, restaurant and hostel in Mitte, Berlin) together with Tresor founder Dimitri Hegemann. In the early 90's Headley produced tape loops which played on constant rotation in a previous bar he ran, most notaby in the toilets. These sound experimentations led to some of the material being released on Tresor. Music For Toilets is an early Tresor release (Tresor 21) that deviates quite a bit from the usual techno and house releases the label and club in Berlin are famous for. The long piece is based on the sounds of water, sewers, flushing swoops and other natural environmental sounds. A work probably also humorously derived from the titles of Brian Eno's work"
