Hate to bump a super old thread, but I was wondering, disco-heads, does anyone know where this track came from and if it was actually by Freur? A google search shows that it may be from an EP released in 2000 from a group called "Fleur". I'm willing to accept that it's just some weird translation/typo thing for the Russian MP3 sites, but when was this track released? It sounds way ahead of its time, assuming it's from the mid-80's. I admit it sounds an awful lot like some of the first ambient tracks UW used to do. Any help?? Thanks

I haven't played this in a while. Thanks for bringing it up, it has some nice electronics. Not sure this was ever an official release - it appears it may just have been released on a demo tape perhaps. Even according to BigScreenSatellites page - it shows it as "Unknown" as to it's origin.

What I'm saying is, do we have any evidence at all that Freur actually made that demo? There was that AViD ambient mix on these boards which I thought used the tune quite well, it fits with other UW stuff, but Freur as far as I know never really made anything as experimental and fully developed as that. Does it really date back to (say) 1985?

I'm reworking my Underworld/Freur review page and I want to know this because I pretty much say that this is the track that really shows the type of group they'd become, and would look pretty stupid if it turns out they didn't even do it...

Lemme break out my external hd ... it SHOULD be on there. I haven't listened to it in a while.
It uses a recording from that number you used to able to dial to get the correct time (like in the Scott Walker song "Time Operator")

I got it from an FTP back .... wow - like probably 10 years ago with some other old Freur tracks like "Uncle Geof" and UW mk1 demos

(edit)

yea - I know this is totally breaking the rules.... BUUUUTTTTT
you can't buy it anywhere, and it had been shared at one point in time...

(and I also included Uncle Jeof in the file)
