Shortly after sample-heavy Hot Doggie by Colourbox appeared on the 4AD Compilation "Lonely Is An Eyesore", the label released a collaborative single between Colourbox and label-mates AR Kane as a Double A-Side. The result was less of a collaboration than intended. One side was nearly all AR Kane, the other side was nearly all Colourbox. It was the latter side that got the airplay, and that took the song to the top of the UK Charts.
Another one from Terry Hall, and another collaboration. This time it's with Ian Broudie, who released his version as the title track from The Lightning Seeds' April 1992 Sense LP.
Hall collaborated with Broudie on a few tracks on that album, and sang BVs on this track. A few years later, Hall recorded his own version for his solo LP "Home" - produced by Broudie. This take is pretty similar to Boudie's - with enough difference that I can definitely say that, although I love them both, I prefer this one.
This is an amazing comeback single.
The band fell apart when singer Ian McCulloch left in 1987, and drummer Pete de Freitas died in 1989. After the Electrafixion project ended up with the three remaining (and, indeed, original) Bunnymen being involved, the band inevitably reverted to the Echo & the Bunnymen name. This was the lead single from the 1997 comeback LP.
