Terry Edwards – Plays Salutes & Executes

terry-frontterry-disc

CD, Stim, 1993

So, we were talking late into the night about our favourite cover versions… and we had a delighted sudden remembrance of the three singular EPs released by British trumpeter and sometime Gallon Drunk guy Terry Edwards in the early 90s sent us scurrying to the racks. Oh happy rediscovery. This collection has all three plus a trio of punk covers. Debate continues to bat back and forth on whether the Mary Chain feedback recreations or the ska-ed up Fall songs are the cream of the crop, but all good, all good. You may also care to check his 1992 Peel session, which saw his motley band play a medley of Napalm Death tunes.
