Colourbox ‎– Breakdown (Second Version) (US 12″)


A couple from Colourbox now. (one from me and one from Mike) A sort of belated tribute as Steven Young, one of the founder members alongside his brother Martyn, sadly died in July this year.

Originally from 1982,  this was a remix of their very first release. Originally sung by  Debian Curry, the first singer with Colourbox. The next year, they reinterpreted and re-recorded both songs for a second 12-inch release, this time with Lorita Grahame singing on the tracks. Produced by Mick Glossop this contains many new sounds and studio techniques such as drop-outs. Like most Colourbox releases it goes off on a different pathway about halfway through.  The driving bassline was completely nicked by Ministry for their song “Every Day is Halloween.”

B-side, “Tarantula” was self produced and engineered by Jon Fryer. It has a feel of Numan about it and is more of a song, breaking into a reggae/dub influenced bouncer half way through!
