Fashion - Product Perfect (1979, UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, January 23, 2007, 07:58 PM - Music, - UK, English
There are two versions of Fashion. This is the first version with singer/guitarist Luke James. The music at this time is a kind of scarce art rock. A synthesizer is used, but not to create a wall of sound as the later Fashion did. Luke's voice is unique.

And there are two versions of this lp. The second version included the single Steady Eddie/Killing Time, but is without Burning Down. And some titles were in French (vẽŗỳ şŧÿłîšħ). I made a combination of the two and added a song from the I.R.S. greatest hits vols.2+3 sampler I had on a cassette tape.

For years I was on the lookout for a cd of the early Fashion, I only found The Height of Fashion, from the later version. No hope it ever comes, I made it myself.

UPDATE:
Luke James mailed me telling that an official re-release on cd can be bought from his MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky, only $10 + $2.50 shipping. A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.


version 1

Single:
1 Steady Eddie [3:26]
2 Killing Time [2:36]

LP side one:
1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:10]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:41]
4 Burning Down [3:31]
5 Big John - Hanoi Annoys me - the Innocent [7:25]

LP side two:
1 Citinite [5:15]
2 Don't touch me [2:57]
3 Bike Boys [5:06]
4 Fashion [3:30]
5 Technofascist [3:35]

I.R.S. greatest hits vols.2+3:
24 Sodium Pentathol Negative [1:55]

What is missing is Wastelife, the b-side of the Citinite 7" and the Silver Blades single. Anyone?


version 2

A Certain Ratio - I need someone tonite (1983, UK, funk) 
Thursday, January 18, 2007, 06:38 PM - Music, - UK, English
Both songs on this 12" are not available on a regular A Certain Ratio cd.
The b-side is a rather pointless version of the Steve Wonder song Dont you worry bout a thing. It's exactly the same... But a nice curiosity.



1 - I need someone tonite [5:39]
2 - Dont you worry bout a thing [4:33]

Not shared anymore.

update:
I need someone tonite is available on cd I'd Like to See You Again.

Bryan Ferry - As the world turns (1977, UK, pop) 
Wednesday, January 17, 2007, 06:44 PM
What the @#$%& does BF on this blog...?
It's not about Bryan Ferry, it's about Robert Fripp. He plays on the b-side. This is in the same period as he played on Heroes of Bowie. Fripp didn't have his own band at that time.



1 This is tomorrow
2 As the world turns
