Cowgirl (C69 mix from A1564)
http://m.pitchfork.com/news/56370-un...adman-reissue/

Very nice early jam...some groovy lyrics, too. Though I still prefer the original!

I always wondered what the vocal was before "An eraser of love." It seems like it may be spliced with the line right before it in this version of "Puppet." So perhaps, "--pet -- An eraser (a razor?) of love" All happens at 9:36.

Re: Dubnobasswithmyheadman: 20th Anniversary 5-CD Deluxe Boxset
Did anyone announce the rerelease of rez, with this demo version of cowgirl as the b-side?

must have missed it:
===============



Rez 12"£10.00
Add to Cart Pre-order limited edition 12” vinyl Rez, released 6th October .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......................................
Side A Rez // Side B Cowgirl (Alt Cowgirl C69 mix from A1564) .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......................................
In an affectionate nod to its past and to mark the 20th Anniversary editions of ‘Dubnobasswithmyheadman’, we are delighted to offer a strictly limited edition 12” of ‘Rez’. It’s limited release in 1993 on pink vinyl JBO 12” has become one of Underworld’s most sought after collectibles and, owing to its scarcity, has been bootlegged frequently. Remastered for 2014, and mastered at Abbey Road the new limited 12” comes on yellow 180gm vinyl with a previously unreleased version of its sister song, ‘Cowgirl’ on the flipside, marking its first ever appearance on vinyl.

Re: Cowgirl (C69 mix from A1564)
Not sure it's entirely exact, but these are pretty much the lyrics.

Quote:
She smells of soap,
she smells so clean,
blonde smiles chrome position,
got it off the television,
wrapped in skin,
the mega bride,
beneath the branded sky,
a puppet,
a razor of love,
said something wonderful once,
she's a cowgirl,
well I suppose,
mini thing fringes and boots,
the double six,
the double six,
the double six Brazil.

She has two names,
one for her face,
the other for her eyes,
the other for the tongue,
she has two names,
one for her face,
the one for her eyes,
the other for the tongue,
thank you for the touch like a razor rub my wound let me to open I'm ready to use,
like vanilla,
like incense,
eighteen years in a week for the comfort of a stranger,
snake bite and cream,
time is running out,
we walk like snakes,
beautiful blonde,
call me I feel like flying,
into good weather,
no no music,
no no cigarettes,
no no elevator Beethoven.

Home video,
skin video,
we are so small,
talk to me,
talk to my machine,
shut your mouth,
I'm a snake man 11:56pm,
with a union gun,
hardware gun software leeches and cream,
freezes big as chickens,
formless and more like a blood thing more like screaming skin she's my aluminium Venus,
fresh eggs and big black Cherokee,
marrying the white gun,
two hundred teeth,
pain scream tax free rediscover guinea pigs,
of Mississippi delta,
too clean red fox over the new power of six ninety-nine,
motionless I'm a red recreation like a river,
swimming with the insects speed monkey saveloy,
star leg into the pan tease it out of the hole triple x,
man dies of erotic overload twenty four hour visiting massage very discreet,
18 to 30 mechanical bone,
flexible friends,
new white new money,
do you want it now in mono or in stereo,
blue removal men through to be batman again,
what's the matter,
what does it think what does it matter what I think,
you got the brain,
you got the use of a brain this week.

I could turn to.
Never get out of a boat,
unless you're going all the way,
I would have done,
I would have done anything,
for you,
thank you for the touch like a razor rub my wound,
let me to open I'm ready to use like vanilla like incense eighteen years in a week with the comfort of a stranger with the,
snake bite and cream,
time is running and we walk like snakes with the beautiful blonde why don't you call me I feel like flying into good weather again,
no no music,
no no cigarettes,
no no elevator Beethoven,
now you're the birdstar big boy beats her with everything fax fluorescent cruel smoking Indian,
rubber gun girl,
charcoal mellow salty salty Cinderella,
snake bite and cream,
she has two names,
one for her face,
the other for her eyes,
the other for her eyes,
she smells of lies,
she smells of soap,
she smells so clean,
blonde smiles in the chrome position,
got it off a television,
wrapped in skin,
she's the mega bride,
beneath her beautiful branded sky,
she's a puppet an eraser of love,
said something wonderful once,
fast boon for sexual America,
sexual advertising,
I'm invisible,
I'm a fallout don't eat the mushrooms.

Re: Cowgirl (C69 mix from A1564)
What an awesome gem from their archives.
Really amazing to hear those little snippets of the final Cowgilr version in there.
Karl's vibe is a bit like the second part of Spoonman ("Don't put your hand .."), only a bit more ... 80s in this one :-)

Also:
take these snippets and you get the lyrics of "Tongue" (changes in brackets):

Quote:
thank you for the touch
like a razor [kiss] my wound
[cut?] me to open
I'm ready to use
like [bring?]vanilla,
like incense,

[I need the] comfort of a stranger

eighteen years in a week

like a razor [kiss] my wound

thank you for the touch

like a razor [kiss] my wound
