I have previously hucked Tages here at la Casa Sunday - a Swedish band that tried to break into the UK market and recorded and Abbey Road around the time of Sgt . Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In keeping with my recent theme of UK psychedelia, here is To Be Free, the b-side to the song in my previous posting. It includes a guitar lick that appears a few times throughout this song that just slays me. It is only seven notes, but the tone and timbre is so at odds with the rest of the song I cannot help but fall in love with it. The song itself has a very odd construction and includes a tinny old upright piano that lends just the right mood. It says what it has to say in less than two minutes, then fades away into a barely audible section of music concréte.
And amazingly enough, someone has put up a promo film for To Be Free on Youtube!
