The Other Two Out Of The Crucial Three

Last weekend I posted a stack of videos by Pete Wylie, who was once in a band called The Crucial Three with two others who rose to fame in their own right.

Ian McCulloch - Candleland (featuring Elizabeth Fraser)

Now, it turns out there's a version of this song that I didn't know existed until last night. Looks like a different mix for TV and radio, which might explain why it was never a hit, because the album version (above) is far, far better.

Julian Cope - World Shut Your Mouth

Julian wrote many great songs, did sacks of drugs and became something of a historian. If you've got eight and a half minutes to spare, give the incredible Safesurfer a spin.
