Human nature promo



1991-10-10 Linz, Posthof

Here's the dubious .nfo file that accompanies this: Interference.txt which states that it's *not* Skip on guitar. Sure as hell sounds like him to me, and I can't imagine playing "The game" with all the "who and what is this Tackhead trash?" samples without him.

I should point out these files are very large because they are .flac format. They are extremely good quality, originally recorded from the sound board, apparently.

?? - ??

A track with no title, by artists forgotten. A track Steve Barker did with Adrian very late one night at Southern Studios around 1985.  This track was composed entirely of samples: a stolen drum pattern from some Fats Comet tracks, a Doug Wimbish bassline from something else, some otherwise unused vocal samples, and a snatch of the vocal from another unreleased track, "I See The World Through Different Eyes".
