Hi all - have just come across a cassette that was bought in Vibes in Bury back in 91/92 (?) by Soft. Apparently, it was only available at Vibes and possibly at Piccadilly Records. It's a plain white cover, with Soft in squidgy black capitals and inside it says:

All music written by SOFT
(All lyrics written by G.Garvey)

Recorded at STUDIO STUDIO (Rochdale)

Produced by Andi Melchior and SOFT

Side A
NO ONE WANTS TO LISTEN

Side B

SO IT GOES

Contact Numbers...

Andi Melchior 061 766 3956
APOCALYPSE STUDIOS (Guy)
Tel/Fax 061 725 9844

Artwork by Karen Jupp


Does anyone know anything about this release? How many are in existence - and obviously, how much is it worth?

I've got it on MP3 but obviously there are copyright issues - if anyone can get official permission to upload it on t'internet it'd be ok. It sounds rather soul/funky, certainly tell Guy's voice but the music is very very different.

Otherwise, you could make me a very good offer for it!! Very Happy Wink

Seriously, is this fairly unknown? I heard back from a couple of friends who are big Elbow fans via Facebook last night and one had heard of its existence but didn't know of anyone who had it and others had just never heard of it. It's certainly pre 1995, when they changed 061 to 0161.

Back in the early days of the forum I'm sure someone mentioned that they had been given a copy of this by GG when he worked at The Roadhouse, so I had heard of it.

I don't think there would be any legal issues, as this wasn't a commercial release. I don't know if the band would mind if it was posted, but if they did care it would probably be for artistic reasons rather than legal ones.

I say go ahead and post it. If they request that I pull it, then I will have to.

I also would love to hear this! After having it described and talked about in so many interviews - it would be great to finally hear it Smile

Definitely upload it. It doesn't seem to be a commercial release so there shouldn't be any legal issues.

The first one sounds like the antichrist of music - Jamiroquai !! AARRRRRGGGHHH ! Mad

So It Goes - straight to the bin I hope ! "When it comes to the crunch, everybody's out to lunch' - that made me chuckle, mind.

A great, great find Kay - they were worse than I imagined !

I quite like the 2 tracks actually, (though obviously different to what they do now)...especially the nifty 70s style Hammond organ and the key/time changes...but then I've always liked the Canterbury band, Caravan, which this reminded me of a bit.



According to the comments on this old thread: http://elbow.heavenforum.org/t500p15-elbow-in-word-magazine-old-pictures-of-the-band

the woman singing is Esther?

If you imagine how young the chaps were then and how sh**t the music is, that usually gets the most airplay, than this tracks are still quite good. I wouldn't change the channel if I would hear that in my local radio station... Smile

I'm totally into it. Sure, compared to the Elbow we now know and love, it's crap--but from an non-biased perspective, this is some pretty enjoyable generic funk.

In any case, Kay, since this cassette IS the band that eventually became Elbow, I'd say it's worth quite a bit. Probably in the realm of how much a copy of the Noisebox EP would sell for. Might even go for more than a copy of Noisebox since this is probably two or three times rarer.
