Release date: 10/08/2013

Barcode: 2090503889866

Catalog no.: CRUSTA0000039

Item ID: 388986

Limited pressing, coloured vinyl. Crystal Jacqueline is new to the Fruits de Mer label but - ably assisted and orchestrated on this three-track 7" by Icarus Peel (with whom she also plays in the band The Honey Pot) - she has a way with sixties psychedelia: from the dark & twisted to pure, driving psych. She takes two songs that I've been waiting for someone to cover since Fruits de Mer was still a winkle in someone's eye - The Troggs disturbed and disturbing Cousin Jane and the long-lost Second Hands 1968 classic A Fairy Tale - and adds a carefully-crafted Play With Fire, previously recorded by the little-known rock combo, The Rolling Stones. If you're wondering whether female vocals work on Cousin Jane, well... please take a listen, Jane is in for even more than she bargained for with Crystal Jacqueline around than when the late, great Reg Presley was climbing the stairs, while Crystal and Icarus create a driving slice of freakbeat out of the massively underrated Second Hand's song, A Fairy Tale, which is surely one of the finest slices of 60s psychedelia ever recorded and was long-overdue a revisit.
Tracks:
1. Cousin Jane (The Troggs) 3:38
2. A Fairy Tale (Second Hand) 3:37
3. Play With Fire (The Rolling Stones) 4:52.
