Synth folk with more than an essence of XTC. From Freur’s second album, “Get Us Out Of Here”, quirky and not very frightening but very hard to find. Karl Hyde and Rick Smith were joined by fellow Underworld members, Alfie Thomas, Bryan Burrows and John Warwicker (now an art designer) All lovingly produced with John Hudson on this October 1984 release. Mad lyrics in a “Wickerman” style from a very original sounding band.
“Jazz Is Kng?” is much more experimental, samples and dub blend well over Hyde’s echoey vocal. A slow, atmospheric track with random jazzy piano and a repetitive bass synth.
