The Talking Drum by King Crimson does this in a pretty dramatic way

i mean as a part of the overall groove tho, as a repeating figure

this is probably not at all what you're thinking but this has some of the greatest record-stop sounds i've ever heard

Having listened to the original track I've got no idea what you mean tbh.

You mean the bit when it goes into the organ solo?

i mean what the guitar bend at the end of every measure. it's not really notes, just kind of a rhythmic atonal squawk that punctuates the groove before it wraps back around again

i'm looking for songs that are like "jump around" by house of pain except the squeal is at the other end of the groove

also:

whoosh
ring
cuica noise

lollll... solidarity with @budo, I know where you're coming from.

I feel like there may be a kinship with certain "train" songs, like rockabilly staple "train kept a rollin"

Gastr del Sol do this a couple of times on Upgrade & Afterlife. "The Sea Incertain" at ~2:30, "Hello Spiral" at ~8:30.

Does VU's "European Son" count?

highway 61 revisited?

How about kerblunk?

Starts about 1:14 and for most of the rest of the track. I remember reading it is actually a tape loop which is a neat trick to sync up with the sequencer in 1981.

getting warmer for sure !

John Kongos - I'm Dreaming

close but a crucial element in what i'm looking for is something more discordant, or at least jarring: a gentle disruption, a way of lifting the listener out of the groove and then setting them back down in it on the other side. it's about tension and release. the clanging guitar chords in "cissy strut" are a close cousin of what i'm getting at.

another example might be the first few bars of:

At The Drive-In - Rascuache

an analogous phenomenon is in funk and boogie tracks when the beat drops ever so briefly and all the singers go "AAHHHHHH" in unison and then the groove starts again.

don't know why that didn't preview but it's Mike & Rich - Jelly Fish

I guess Insane In The Brain might count?
