‘Better Late’ Samples of demos and live stuff recorded at the reunion gig at the Liquid Rooms, Embra in December 2013. Some of these will be new to you (a couple were surprises to us) and some are old favourites. We think they’ll sound better than the bootlegs/cassette versions you may have heard already. Thanks for the remixing and remastering, Spiny…
Diana Barrymore – in the pre-Google days, Dave didn’t know who she was – now we all know.
So Stuck Up – This is a fairly raucous and zippy song – no idea why we dropped it from the set early doors.
Don’t Wanna Eat You – Da Blues (Valves-style). We’d forgotten all about this one till Ronnie found it on a dusty old cassette. Dig the suspended chord – unique in the Valves repertoire.
Haircuts from Mars – Our epic 2m 50s Buddy Holly/Outer Limits/Dillinger magnum opus – note subtle presence of kitchen sink in the production.
