|Additional Info||Often credited to The Human League, this track was technically by The Men, who were in actual fact The Human League. |
In a stunningly prescient moment, this track by THL Mk I was a portent of what was to come with THL Mk II. To be honest, there's no incarnation of The Human League that I don't love.
Ian Burden was going to play Bass Guitar on this track, but it was a last minute rush, so I decided to utilise his talents on some songs for the forthcoming Subculture album.
Mo Foster played the bass on this track originally, and I spent several hours analysing the bassline and recreating every nuance, albeit in synthetic form. This involved a lot of pitch bending and modulation.
I hope you enjoy it!
