Spring Heel Jack: Versions (Trade 2, 7tks/48 mins)

Ian Gittins, Melody Maker, 14 September 1996

VERSIONS Comprises Spring Heel Jack's crafty reworkings of the mechanical masterpieces which made up their godlike recent 68 Million Shades... album. It marks the point where the scientific gives way to the sensual, the logarithmic to the lyrical. These tunes are both identical to, and a million miles from, the clipped and clinical tracks which sired them.
