I once owned a 12" inch single that played different tracks on the same side - presumably according to where you dropped the needle at the beginning.

Anyone else seen this? What's it called?
I think I might have a 12” single like that. Maybe the first Fuzzbox single?

Sorry, that didn't come across well but I was only joking.
Didn't Monty Python's Matching Tie and Handkerchief album do this? One side was side 1 and then the other side had sides 2 and 3 on it, I think.

Right—it was double grooved. There was also a floppy vinyl that came in an issue of Mad called “A Super Spectacular Day.” The beginning was always the same, about how wonderful life is until … followed by a half dozen different endings about how the day went to shit.

Edit: Found the Mad record on youtube.

Known as concentric or parallel grooves. There have been a fair few over the years. I had a Sonic Youth one years back. My favourite has to a 12'' single by psychobilly band King Kurt their song Destination Zulu Land had a B-side called Dnal Uluz Noitanitsed and it played from the centre groove out to the edge.

The 12" M single of Pop Muzik / M Factor came out like that. Pain in the arse it was. Mind you, I gave a loan to a mate who was a DJ and he put it on without knowing - and yes, he got M Factor.

Correct. This was the first time I discovered they can make this. I thought I was losing my mind at first :mrgreen:

I remember on the old Stranglers Album Aural Sculpture in cassette format they had a hidden computer game that was written by the keyboardist Dave Greenfield and i think it was called Aural Quest. I had the cassette but never played the game so i wouldn't know how good it was, i think you needed an Amstrad computer to play it.

In the wikipedia article for f-punk it says:
There is also a hidden track 3:47 into "I Turned Out a Punk"
Have I been missing something for 23 years? They're just considering that extended outro part as an 'extra track' right?
I think you are right about the extended outro part. Just played it. There is a bit of a pause at 3:47, which is presumably when the single version ended, and then it goes into the extended part.
i just checked as well :) and I think it must be this but its a bit of a stretch of the imagination to call it a extra track. The song has a definate change of drum pace and tune but they clearly sing quietly "I turned out a punk" as it fades out. Struggling to understand why the wikipedia would consider this as a hidden extra track if they didnt continue singing then an extra interlude song i would agree like they did on megatop. i think wiki is trying to be too clever at discovering something new.

Monty Python's Matching Tie And Handkerchief album has one side that plays through 2 different ways, a second groove on the album side, freaked the hell out of my brother and I when I got the record and we listened to it, lol. That was in like 1973 or 74, we freaked out and then laughed our asses off at what they had done.
