Freddie – Stay This Way

From the Freddie Past & Present cassette album of 1988. Originally a much faster track written with Richard of Voice Of The Rain as well as Fred I slowed it down and used my entire arsenal of three effects pedals to get a swirly pad like background.

Fred & Friends – Cracked Black

A Christine number recorded after the demise of the band by Fred and Richard plus Jim from the Jackalsons and accidentally yours truly after failure of a hired four track recorder resulted in time pressure to get it done with the borrowed replacement.

I cut Carnival Of Souls about to go with it.

Christine – Murder My Emotion (1986)

Still living in the past here’s an early collaboration between the duo responsible for VTOR, though Richard is on bass rather than singing for Christine. Jim, later of the Gits, also guests as the second drummer on this track based on Adrian Mitchell‘s To Whom It May Concern. (Not that anyone told me that at the time).

Fred who provides vocals here sang the very last Gits song at the very last Gits gig.

The video this time is made up from Rebus Film No.1 by Paul Leni from 1925.
