Crash Course In Science releases 'Jump Over Barrels' 12' on Dark Entries Records
Crash Course In Science have release another 12" on Dark Entries Records. After the successful re-issue release of their long sold-out and original main artefact, the 12" 'Signals From Pier Thirteen', the follow up 12" release couldn't be long in coming.
The original 'Jump Over Barrels' was recorded at the Third Story Studio in Philadelphia in 1981, one year after “Signals From Pier Thirteen”. The songs remained unmixed and unreleased at that time for a proposed album titled “Near Marineland”. Lyrically the song tackles overcoming obstacles, be them self imposed or otherwise with vocals interplay between Michael and Mallory.
On the A Side are the original mix and a demo mix from 1981. Then on the flip is a brand new remix by prolific Ann Arbor producer Charles Manier, a pseudonym of Tadd Mullinix, who toughens up the track. Also included is an unreleased demo version of the song from 1980, possibly at its rawest and stripped down skeleton.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in a custom-made jacket by our in-house designer Eloise Leigh that incorporates abstract barrel symbols rolling in different positions with the jumping squiggles also changing accordingly riffs of synth knobs and sound wave visuals.CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE (USA) [permalink]
