Re: ‚Emma‘ question

Okay, I put my listening helmet on, Gary Marx‘s guitar lines are noticeably absent from this particular version, so I think it is from the April/June 85 sessions at Strawberry.

‚Emma‘ question

Does Gary Marx play on the „Victims of Circumstance“ studio version of „Emma“? In other words, is this version an FALAA outtake, or is it a post-Marx outtake from the spring 85 sessions at Strawberry?

Re: Body Electric/Adrenochrome sped up?

I mean, sped up to a higher key. Similarly, „Fix“ has been slowed down to a lower key, compared to the live versions (or they tuned down the bass and guitars for this one).

Body Electric/Adrenochrome sped up?

When I compare the single version of „Adrenochrome“ with the Floorshow demo and live versions, it appears to me that they definitely sped up the tape. I‘m not sure if it is just the backing track that has been sped up or if the vocals have been sped up, too?

Dominion vs. Fun Boy Three

I don't know id this has not come up yet, but "Dominion" is a straight rip-off of the Fun Boy Three's "Our Lips Are Sealed".

Real drums on 'Floorshow' EP

Hi there, don't know if this has been discussed before. I had a listen to the 'Floorshow'-EP yesterday using headphones. During 'Floorshow' (the song) I noticed some real drums additionally being played over the drum machine part, specifically during: 0:10-0:33 min 0:44-1:08 min 1:25-1:40 min 1:48-2...

Paris Riots

Paris Riots = a band David Wolfenden played in, before he joined the Expelaires! Must have been ~1977/78.

The US Copyright Office website gives a release date of 16 February 1987 for the soundtrack album. Both songs sound more like Blondie than the Violets.

Patricia Morrison was asked about that in an interview

My first one was "Never Mind The Bollocks". CD case now badly scratched over the years from chopping up lines of speed - it adds to the flair of the album whenever I play it... :lol:

Sadly, the answer is NO. The US version is identical to the standard CD version. The timing discrepancies are only part of the artwork. But they give a hint which L.A. mixes were dropped from the release in favour of earlier rough mixes.
