A Nice Tune By AF Harrold from I Eat Squirrels
Sounds that I make
Smoke On The Water 1982
The first thing I ever recorded, to an old knackered stereo Revox reel to reel.
By a mixed Boys & Masters line-up for a Shelley House assembly at Forest School Horsham in 1982. The drum solo at the end was hindered by the kit slowly escaping across the stage.
Vocals – David Dowding & Richard Loughran (English Teacher)
Lead Guitar – Dave Pickup (Head Of English)
Rhythm Guitar – Matthew Streater?
Bass – Chap from Mansion with longish hair. Neil?
Drums – Darren Richardson?
Annoyingly when this was on Posterous a chap commented with the line-up but I lost it when they closed down.
Probably a bit previous but the word on the web is that The Sound Of Leamington Spa Volume Seven could be out soon. 1
A combination of different recordings to create a new version of this popular vaudeville standard for inclusion in the Firestation Records release ‘The Sound Of Leamington Spa Strikes Back With A Vengeance Part Deux’. This is one of a series of compilations gathering British indie pop releases of the 1980s.
This video takes the kitchen sink approach and tries to fit in all the sorts of things we did on our cassette releases such as using out takes and ‘humorous’ interludes. These were generally funny the first time and profoundly irritating by the third or fourth listen.
Errors & Omissions
It should of course have been ‘clench your buttocks’. Sorry for any confusion caused. (The Gits are not liable for any injuries caused by following ambiguous advice).
