Crash (Eastenders RMX) by Dark Company.
Album: Signmaker

Bonus track!

No more candid picture shows
Just soap bubble opera’s shallow glows
They tell me it’s a story about my life
To just ignore what I don’t like
It’s so real I must live like that
Script in my pocket and a ticket in my hat

We gotta stop
We’re gonna crash
Life is money you can’t pay back
Life is money you can’t pay back

No more cracks in the temple walls
Next week’s episode will save us all
Your mirror becomes a TV tube
What was reflection now is a view
The face you see is not your own
It spends its time in someone else’s home

We gotta stop
We’re gonna crash
Life is money you can’t pay back
Life is money you can’t pay back

No more thoughts in a lazy way
They scream from the glass: “We’ll make your day!”
I believe it’s true because it’s on the screen
But you can only see what they have seen
We’re all plugged in to one beating heart
Life don’t begin until the programme starts

We gotta stop
We’re gonna crash
Life is money you can’t pay back
Life is money you can’t pay back

Fun Facts:
* This version of Crash is essenially identical to the oher version on the Signmaker album, except for one extra track on the reel-to-reel machine.
* This extra track is full of EastEnders voice samples and some raher flaulent sounds from the EDP Wasp.
* All the samples were taken from a single omnibus episode of EastEnders, which was broadcast on uk terrestrial TV in December 1991.
* The sampling was done using the Alesis Quadraverb Plus, which has a maximum sample length of just 1.55 seconds.
* Crash was Alien Heat’s set opener, although sadly no recordings of the Alien Heat version still exist as far as we know.
* The key is B minor.
* When George went to entertain the folks of Plymouth in the subways with his acoustic guitar, he used to play Crash sliced together with another Dark Company song called Ulysses.
* Ulysses was not developed very much by Alien Heat.
* Pete then lost the lyrics.
* The music for Ulysses later became an Ug Brothers song, called Paperchase.
* Crash was the very first song that Jeff played bass on for Dark Company.
* All the guitar dirt is natural Marshall overdrive.
* George had just had his Mk I head revalved and spent around 45 minutes playing feedback, until Pete appeared and asked him very politely to stop.
* The guitar parts for Crash were recorded within a few days after that.
* George and Richard wrote the organ part in George’s Haldon Road bedsit one day, when Richard came to visit with his keyboards.
* Whatever contributions Marc and Graham made to the writing of Crash are now lost in the mists of time, although they receive a small credit here nevertheless.
