Then Jericho – Let Her Fall (12″)

jerichoedFrom 1986 and another slice of Then Jericho and their brand of Simple Minds sounding stadium rock. Again before their biggish hit “Big Area” the record company (London records) must of invested heavily in the band with the slick packaging and the top producers Owen Davies (who worked on most of their stuff) A quite electronic but very rocky track, the guitar rift blows a few cobwebs away on first listen! B-side , “Blessed Days” is produced by Steve Brown and remixed by a young Julien Mendelsohn, to stunning effect with some unique sounds and effects, superb! A “live” version of “Searching” has a bizarre rapping section from Shaw towards the end, credited to Grandmaster Flash on the sleeve. Good live band though.

  1. Man, wish you would repost these. Then Jerico and The The, especially. You’ve unearthed some real gems.

    1. Re-upped for ya ! Which The The ?

      1. Thanks!

        The The – Infected 12″ – I think I have heard the energy mix, but not sure. I believe the other mix for the song is on the special edition of The The’s 45 RPM collection.
