Here we have a beautiful version of Gene Clark’s Strength of Strings by one of the best studios groups of all time, This Mortal Coil. The original version appears on Clark’s mystical 1974 solo record No Other. This version features the powerful vocals of Dominic Appleton and is taken from their double LP masterpiece Filigree & Shadow. While the song doesn’t work as well out of the context of the album, it’s still worth listening too, especially on a good sound system or in headphones. I highly recommend buying the LP. Click the song title for download.
Strength of Strings
Video of Psychic TV performing live in their very early years when Sleazy was in the group and they sounded more like Throbbing Gristle with Sleazy on electronics and Genesis on bass. Contains excellent versions of classics Roman P and Unclean.
