From November ’85 and a debut on this blog from Welsh legend and Velvet Underground member, John Cale.
A three tracker
The line-up was ; Backing Vocals – Gill O’Donovan and Suzie O’List (both from The Croquettes) Guitar – David Young, Keyboards – James Young (Nico and Faction), Percussion – Graham Dowdall (Nico and Faction) and Keyboards and vocals – John Cale.
Carl Beaty provided the remix on this Roxy Music-ish bit of funk. With plenty of Byrne-ism’s
“Dying On The Vine” has layers of percussion and Cale’s deep but fragile vocal linked with a sinewy bass.
The last track is suitably experimental. A suitable drone and piano chords for the instrumental “Crash Course In Harmonics”
