What is the guitar like instrument in "Horsell Common and the Heat Ray"? It is played staright after Richard Burton says "And snake like tenticles writhed as the clumsy body heaved and pulsated" I think, from the credits in the DVD of the live version its called a "Tar", but I am not sure. Please, PLEASE Answer my question! It would be great help!

Thanks, HMS Thunder Child

Yes it's a tar. You can see Gaetan Schurrer playing one on the DVD and George Fenton played it on the original album.
