untitled (Cauty's Sound Weaponry)

By ? (September 1996, Q Magazine)

Farmers in Totnes, Devon claim their cattle were frightened by bizarre weapons tested by Jimmy Cauty from the scam-mongering K Foundation at his home. Neighbours Roy and Pat Tucker are convinced an ear-splitting noise created by two experimental military weapons owned by Cauty terrified their cattle late at night, causing a calf to be still-born the following day. Another neighbour descirbed the noise as "a didgeridoo gone mad" and "bad heavy rock multiplied by a million".

The musician said he and friends had been testing two sonic weapons, designed in the '60s, which he'd purchased from the Ministry of Defence.

The weapons systems are for disabling enemy troops on the battlefield and are mounted on Saracen armoured personnel carriers. The 25,000 watt devices are capable of generating sounds up to 135 decibels.

Claiming he was firing some low level frequencies at a radio mast, Cauty - last heard of playing pyromaniacal silly buggers with £1 million in notes - conceded: "It is a shame about the cows. Sheep did not seem to be bothered by it at all but obviously we hit on a frequency cows object to. It was not a party and there were only about 10 people there. We were just demonstrating it because it is such an awesome piece of equipment. We are not really sure what it can do."

Cauty insisted that warning flares were fired beforehand and the testing went on for just the 45 minutes of mind-altering volume.

"I don't think we will do it again from here," he said, "but if I can persuade the military to let me do tests on their ranges on Dartmoor that would be ideal."
