Unreleased Tin Machine Track Emerges  

Originally slated as track 3 on Tin Machine's second album, this song (titled SHOCK FOR ONE on youtube) was apparently pulled at the last minute and then intended as a b-side.

The bside never eventuated, and the track has remained unreleased ever since.

LISTEN HERE

The video has been cut to add a little bit of eye fodder while listening to this gem.

Well it is very Tin Machine isn;t it! Except the chorus, which admittedly is the only bit I like. I will give it a few more listens

Tin Machine producer Tim Palmer has told me that he remembers the song, but cannot remember the name. He remarks "It has been a while. I like it though".

I am waiting on replies from Reeves and Tony.

Tin Machine II - the lost gem in the crown new [re: Adam]  

Further cements my opinion that Tin Machine II is a too-oft overlooked, underrated and maligned album on the strength of the two Sales tracks. Drop 'Stateside' and 'Sorry', whack this one in there, you've got a ten track album that is certainly Bowie's best since 'Scary'.

God have mercy, you're a hopeless guitar player! You even make ME feel better you son of a bitch!

On a serious side, tv eye's slightly more elaborate reply pretty much sums it up - the track sounds like a throwaway with very little thought given to it. It would be interesting to know which ones of them wrote it, tho'.

It wasn't as bad as I expected, from the comments. It's a "I'd never put it on my mp3 player" song - not good enough to be an "I'd put it on but almost always skip it" track, but not so bad that it's a "I'm embarrassed to be a fan of this man" track, either. It's very Tin Machine.

A BDU member has relayed the following:

"Opps. I think that I might be responsible for David not putting that song on the second Tin Machine CD. When David invited me into the studio to listen to the rough mix of the second Tin Machine CD (that was recorded in Sydney) he asked what I thought of each track. I thought this one was a bit weak compared to the rest so I told him to lose it. Reeves agreed so David dropped it from the CD. Sorry about that. It's not a bad track now that I hear it again. That is how I remember it anyway."

I would've liked this new track if it was on TM2 (accounting for my youthfulness then) Not so much now though.

It reminds me bizarrely of a track that could've been on the Absolute Beginners OST ... backing vocals like some big suited kid creole types in the 80's.

Yes, I have followed a hunt for pest control issues on farmland here in Australia because I dont' believe in shooting animals but that's not the point here. It's just the only point you keep brining up cos you have no other argument against me, other than childish name calling. Now fuck off back to wankerworld where you belong, where they love harbouring paedophiles like you.

Otherwise, what is your sick obsession with my teeth that you've mentioned 100 times in this thread? You're so obsessed you can see them again, hopefully that will make you piss off like a good little paedo back to all those stauesque uber-models at Wankerworld

*I just had a little look over at Wankerworld myself, it's been no fun since Strawie got shafted so I rarely bother anymore. But it looks to me like Ardent needs a break from the internet for a while to stop and regroup, become human again. The cyberworld is obviously getting to him. Too much internet makes anyone a nasty piece of work, especially one who's already got social issues in the real world!

Because you insist on LYING all the time.

So you started this.


You can call me a paedophile all you want , but we both know that you know that isn't the truth

Re: Unreleased Tin Machine Track Emerges new [re: trendy rechauffe]  

I rank this song as middle quality on the Tin Machine II scale - certainly better than 'Stateside' and 'Sorry' and even 'You Can't Talk'. It's probably on a similar level to songs like 'A Big Hurt' and 'If There is Something' if not a little better - but it's not the pinnacle represented by 'Shopping For Girls', 'You Belong in R&R' and 'Goodbye Mr Ed'.

Here's what I make of the lyrics (with schizo's assumption of the chorus):

I got a blues
Layered in a little house
Less I know
Less I feel a godless, come the sun (?)

Call my blues a rat race
All the rats are winning
God moves in mysterious ways
God moves in, the rats they move out

It's tough, but, it's OK!
It's tough, but, it's OK!

Angels come in limousines
When the night is down
They glide along the shiny streets
Touch me when I'm down
I love this grimy city
I love this freaky town

It's tough, but, it's OK!
It's tough, but, it's OK!

Brother I see they took you
Took you off the front line
Memory is our best defense
Memories are made of all of this

(Sax solo)

Squeezing out a generation
Waiting for the next
Killing them by the radio
Hey, I am not ready for this

It's tough, but, it's OK!
So I lie, lie, lie

Angels come in limousines
When the night is down
They glide along the shiny streets
Touch me when I'm down
I love this grimy city
I love this freaky town

It's tough, but, it's OK!
It's tough, but, it's OK!

Hangs upon a cross
A man who crossed the road
I came across the cross eyed man
Crossed him down and trusting no one

It's tough, but, it's OK!
It makes me lie, lie, lie
It's tough, but, it's OK!
My memories are made of this

(Sax solo)

It's tough, but, it's OK!
It's tough, but, it's OK!

Sequencing a generation
Waiting for the next
Suffocate my radio
Hey, I am not ready for this
So I lie, lie, lie
So I lie, lie, lie
Three times in a day
