Terence Ruffle Fort Lauderdale the Mayor's parade along the Intercoastal

Here’s a demo I made at Jem’s house in Victoria road, in April 1991. There’s ten Terences on this track, bass, numerous guitars and vocals, and of course I wrote it: I believe the drum machine was E’s, and programmed by him. Both Jem and E engineered/recorded it, through a blue fog……

Tev 3-07

Here’s a series of demos I made in 1980 at Pete Reynold’s STMS studio: most of the songs were inspired by a psychedelic trip with Jed Wilson, to search for Horseradish on a beautiful sunny Autumnal day. A touch of the Barretts I fear:
