Nephatiti (ftao 808)

Postby Dr.Walsh » 02 Jan 2003 16:52

If Graham/Andy/Darren is online:

I am interested in some facts about the excellent tune 'Nephatiti' off 'Ex:el'.

Presumably the tune is about Queen Nefertiti of Egypt, but I would like to know why the different spelling from almost every reference I have found? :-?

The only reference I can find to her name being spelt 'Nephatiti' is in an article on crocodile dung being used as a contraceptive by ancient Egyptians at:

I am just getting into a bit of Egyptology (and I am going to Egypt next month) so would be interested to know. Also, where did the spoken sample in the tune come from?

The sample 'We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dreams' comes from Charlie and the Chocolate factory I think!!! courtesy of Mr Willy Wonka?

Its a great tune one of the best on EX:EL

Sorry, I meant the voice saying 'Nephatiti'/'Nefertiti'!

If you look at the discography, you'll see that on the Ex:El demo it was called 'Nefertiti'. Perhaps they just changed it for effect (Cübik/Cubic ?)

And for a bonus point, who wrote the poem from which Willy Wonka lifted the lines?

That would be Arthur O'Shaughnessy :) and I claim my bonus point.

Good to see you still kicking around JD.
