PERSONNEL: David Hull, everything?
1. Word Game
1. Sprechen Sie Deutsch
This may have been the first recording I ever received from David “Davey” Hull, well prior to his move from Essex to Berlin. “Sprechen Sie Deutsch” skates on crude oil. “Blue” pleads, drones, and unravels. “Talking” actually rocks. “Word Game” is all clawing, crabbing Syd-guits; “Wealth,” a secret ceremony, shrouded in anxious fog, pummeled mad by drums. Just beautiful and weird.
Note: The sides are reversed on the J-card; my track listing follows markings on the cassette.
