Mornington Crescent - Demo 1982
Well here's a rare treat for you all.
Mornington Crescent came from Amsterdam and are wellknown for their classic but very rare 'Greetings From Amsterdam' 7".
Here's the demotape that precedes the 7". The line-up was a different one: another singer and even a female vocalist. Rumour goes that the 1st singer had to leave because he sounded too gruff. Pretty weird if you know that the singer on the 7" has even more gruff vocals.
The tape comes with a lyrics booklet but the weird thing is that the lyrics printed don't match with the songs on the tape.
The tape opens with the instrumental 'Wals'. Then you get some decent fast punk stuff. 'The Bomb' ends with the obligatory explosion. 'I (It's Me)' is only 3 seconds long and 'Filth' is the slow dirge here.
