I have this “Special extended 12″ mix” by a band whose name was a graphic squiggle, that was subsequently given the pronunciation Freur. I have to blame CFNY for this purchase, because they played it just often enough to make me want my own copy. It’s a perfect 6 minutes 4 seconds of Synth-Pop from 1983.
My copy of the record isn’t as out of focus as the one in the video above. Although I do have to admit that it may have been on some occasions. I also must admit that I love the cricket chorus at the very beginning of the track.
If you skip to the 6:00 minute mark you hear an snippet of someone talking, but the sound is played backwards. On the record it’s just before the needle heads in to the tail off groove at the end, and isn’t very loud.
I didn’t feel like running my turntable backwards, so I recorded it and then inverted it back again, using Audacity. Now you can hear what was being said.
I still don’t know what he’s saying. *sad trombone*
