Lyrics
V 1

Take what you want from me, (ooh yeah) possessions are only make believe,
(The) photographs, (the) telegrams - in this world of make believe.

All the sinners in this earth (ooh yeah) make up our Governments.
Fill us with those white lies, it ain't normal to smell the scent.

--Pre CH--

Yet I try to love this country, for a second I feel no pain

CH 1

Don't you try running away when they tempt us they beg us to stay.
Leaving it all too late, saying there's another time and another place.

V 2

Shaking it up, they're twisting your words round
Shaking it down, laughing at you.
Never been right - never been wrong.

--Pre CH--

Yet we try to love this country, for a second I feel no pain.

CH 2

Don't you try running away when they tempt us they beg us to stay.
Leaving it all too late, saying there's another time and another place.

--Sax Solo--

CH 3

Don't you try flying away when they tempt us they beg us to stay.
Leaving it all too late, saying there's another time and another place.

Don't you try running away when they tempt us they beg us to stay.
Leaving it all too late, saying there's another time and another place.

--Repeat above CH's to end.

This isn't a home recording, is it??? Production is fantastic - reminds me of ABC. Did you get a deal? This work is chart quality, no question guys.
Great dynamics, and really nice chorus change - top 10 in my book!

Deal or no deal
Interesting that you mention ABC Steve. As you may know, Trevor Horn brought them (Frankie etc.) to fame largely due to his cool productions skills. I was and still am a massive T Horn fan and tried my best to learn from his work. Thomas Dolby too. Emailed Thomas last weekend to see if he digs trax on MJ's.

Kudos again to BBC Scotland for free open access to Studio 2 here in Glasgow during Feb and Aug 1992. *High 5* too to our producer Graham Knowles *the man with the magic bowls* on the sound engineering/production front.

It's not everyday one of your band members, in this case great bass guitar, happens to be a BBC employee.

"In off the black"

Sounds crazy but for some reason we never released any of this stuff although not through want of trying.

This is a 100% analog studio recording done entirely by the band (Catch). The copy I'm working from is on a standard good quality chrome tape with Dolby [B] noise reduction. Knowlsey has DAT copies so it's not unreasonable to say that we can put out even clearer copies.

Whilst it was great fun recording these sessions, it's brilliant that people can now actually listen to/download them. On the production front, "white lies" is probably my favourite but there's still more to come.

This is great fun listening to this stuff. For the first couple of notes I thought this was Frankie! Why did I buy all nine versions of the Two Tribes 12"???? No one will ever know.......

I was a big Trevor Horn fan - and also Thomas Dolby (no relation).

More of this please,
Phil

Horn & Dolby
Hey Phil,

Glad you like.

More indeed to follow !!

There were 9 12"s of Two Tribes? WOW. Yes I do indeed recall there were many. ZTT Records must have been "'aving a laugh"... I take it you will have been into Propaganda and Art of Noise etc.

Just looked at the ZTT.com website (1st time). Loads of xlnt links to check out.

As you may know, Thomas Dolby is still very active and on tour in the States. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he replies in due course to my email.

To most outrageous number of mixes that I am aware of was top producer Arthur Baker who did 40 mixes of Confusion by New Order.

Propoganda!!!
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou -

I was racking my brain trying to remember them - they did my fave 12" (but can't remember the song - might have been 'A Secret Wish'???)

I also had one of the 40 Confusion re-mixes - good stuff.

Ah memories, memories:-))
