Click on the link above to hear this early Silver Laughter original. I was not in the band when they recorded it. I am asking for clarification from those in the know (Steve and Jon) so I will make my best guess now and update this when I get the answers.
So here goes. I think Steve Elliott wrote and sang lead on this clip. However, who played lead is only a guess; John Carstensen?
Getting dizzy yet from going back and forth in time??? Thanks to Steve who sent me a bunch of clips, several of them which have not been posted yet!
From Jon: It was an old Silver Laughter original song, along with: Summer Weeds, Squelch (instrumental), What’s Up?, The Lord Helps Those That Help Themselves, Routine Poison, Hang Yourself, Pancake Baby (instrumental), Razor Blades And Cottage Cheese, Gorgon.
From Steve: I wrote it when Silver Laughter was Jon, Kim, John Carstensen and myself. After I left the band and you and Jon re-worked the song into “Turn Your Face Away”, I re-worked the original concept and made a demo. So it was an SL song of mine that I re-recorded.
