Careful

Following on from yesterday's post. I will give Sasha some credit for bringing a wonderful song to the attention of a wider audience albeit in the form of a remix. The song was Careful by Horse and I think initially he used to mix the original in with some trance shit and eventually remixed the track into, you guessed it some trance shit.

I first heard of Horse when a friend off mine asked "Do you want to go to the Tube?" to which there could only be one answer, followed by how? It turned out that there was some family connection to this band Horse and H had been offered 4 places on the bus to go down and support the band on the Tube and knowing of my love for the show, as it was the first place I had seen and heard Billy Bragg I was offered a place.

My lasting memories of the day were:-
  • That I didn't really like the people on the bus down, all pretentious Glasgow Uni students who wouldn't buy us under agers a carry out.
  • Horse weren't really my bag
  • It was probably the worst Tube line up in history, Vow Wow (Japanese Heavy Metal band), Chiefs Of Relief ( Paul Cook and some boy from Adam and the Ants/Bow Wow Wow's band), Horse of course and Janet Jackson.
  • The Tube studio was a lot smaller than it looked
and
  • Jools Holland was a cock
After the recording we ended up in a pub that I seem to recall was called Cleopatras with a band who were busking outside the studio and for the life of me can't remember the name of. The producers or someone gave them some money as they were featured before the opening credits when Holland and Yates were doing their speil outside and we helped them drink it. Then onto the coach with the po-faced students who couldn't believe how drunk we were.

Anyway, I was never a big fan of Horse, either the group or when she later went solo. I do, however love this track.

Horse - Careful

And while searching YouTube just on the off chance I found this

Great story mind you......

Exactly. Though I was hoping you'd meet some girl in the pub who'd later send you a mixtape...

The Pub was probably The Egypt Cottage right next door to the studio on City Road.

Ctel - if you could post those Fluke mixes that'd be much appreciated - have the 12 inch but haven't heard it for well over a decade due to not having record player and had more of less forgotten it until this post.

Drew - Sasha's airdrawndagger is worth a listen - kind of a bit like Orbital and not what I was expecting from Sasha at all (in a good way).

Drew - if you have that Sasha mix to post, that'd be lovely.

Sorry - Ctel didn't bother to buy it as I was on a trance boycott at the time.
