Crystal Futures

  • Crystal Futures
  • The Truth (UK Strange Fruit) 1983 

One David Elbee is behind this disc, all done on the Fairlight synthesizer and dedicated to Screaming Lord Sutch, Kamahl (international piano version of Mantovani) and Plastic Bertrand. When it’s not too busy parodying one thing or another (including itself), The Truth delivers striking, Residents-like passages.
