The Associates – Fire And Ice (US Promo 12″)

See’s things have picked up after a nervous start to this new decade. Thanks mostly to Mike’s superb rare promo’s here is another from the Associates from 1990.A later release which has been given lush strings over a 70’s disco beat by Julian Mendelsohn. New York DJ, Bobby Konders does the ice house thang, piano and a deep bass over the beats and THAT voice. All the mixes are very similar but I like the light piano on the “Frosty Vocal Mix.” Again piano lovers will love the overdubbed piano on B2 and 3 provided by Julio Herrera. Always one for a interesting take on another song, “Green Tambourine” (originally by The Lemon Pipers from 1968) keeping the psychedelia and notching it up to the max!
