Tuesday Moment of Dark Psychedelia in E-Minor

Okay, pardon another little self-indulgence, but here's the fabulous Floor Models and "Fade Into Grey". Our fairly blatant rip-off of "Eight Miles High" as heard on that recently re-discovered cassette of our earliest (circa 1981) home demos I bugged you about a couple of weeks ago.

This is one of the first songs we worked up as we were getting our act together, although I think writer and lead singer Gerry Devine had it lying around for some time prior to the band. In any case, the forthcoming Floor Models The Album We Never Made CD project will feature a much better recorded version, done a couple of years later, after we'd written an instrumental bridge to the thing.

But I love -- nay, lurve -- the backwards guitars just before the final verse here; kudos to our producer, Beatlemania alumnus David Grahame.
