Cranes – Jewel

To be honest the indie scene of the early 90s does not owe much to Portsmouth, except the S.K.A.W and The Cranes.  But saying that even less came out of neighbouring Southampton and Bournemouth.

The Cranes enjoyed moderate stardom and this was probably due to The Cure taking them under their wing and giving them a support slot on their Wish tour.

Robert Smith remixed Jewel from the album Forever for the title track of this EP, and does a good job of smoothing out the the abrasive drums.  He also seems to cheer this gloomy goth number up a bit.
