Jack Of Swords - The Box

What's this we've got here then? A 12" with a Suicide-style Sabres logo (in yellow) which has a slow electronic backing track to John Cale reciting 'The Gift'. Jack Of Swords (half of Waxworth Industries and half of Fuzzy Logic) had previously paid tribute to Suicide on the 'VegaGod' release but seeing as how I'm in a Velvets mood this is what you're getting.

The A-side's not a dance track, by any stretch of the imagination, but a good one for Velvets (and Sabres!) completists.

The B-side has The Blackangel's Death Mix which is a whole different kettle o'fish, a great dance track which has tiny wee whispery filtery bits of Cale's vocal over a Sabres-style backing courtesy of Technova (they're all so incestuous this lot).

Cheers for that - I've got most of the Sabres/Sabrettes 12"s and they'll all go up eventually. Stay tuned...
