Keeping it Alternative and Leftfield with the choices all through the Easter Weekend.
A forgotten but classic single from The Teardrop Explodes released after the successful “Passionate Friend” and from the album “Wilder” this keeps the driving horn section of the previous singles and the fab lyrics but failed to make a dint in the charts after previous success. Angular Soul, but the drugs were kicking in apparently and Cope wanted to alienate himself from the public eye.
The B-side is darker and more experimental. “East Of The Equator” being a instrumental in the vein of Joy Division with plenty of atmospherics, whilst “Window Shopping For A New Crown Of Thorns” is probably the closest thing to an Easter record this year. With it’s squeeze box Harmonium from Dave Balfe and hard to decipher lyrics, it veers off to mysticism and more cross spoken lyrics, weird
“Shoot my eyes out, I could wake up dreaming!”
