Catherine Wheel – She’s my Friend

The  debut  single  that  was released  on the  minuscule  Wilde  Club label.   It was never  going  to  make an impression on the charts as it is a vinyl only release limited to 3000 copies, but it did cause much excitement in the indie world.

It has the original versions of She’s My Friend and Salt, these were rerecorded for Ferment.  I would not say that there is much different between the single and album version, except the album version is less fuzzy (which could be a good or bad thing).  Salt has slightly softer vocals and harmonies, which more standard in the shoegazing genre.

Both Wish and Upside Down are good solid songs but never made it onto the album. Interestingly, the sleeve for the single features a Carrie impersonator covered in blood, the photograph was taken at a San Francisco gay parade.
