P.C.P. backing vocal lyrics + No Surface All Feeling coda

P.C.P. backing vocal lyrics revealed + how the No Surface All Feeling coda was achieved


Hi Everyone,

We hope that you are all well!

We have recently added some additional information to our interviews with Dave Eringa and Mark Freegard.

So, as fans have discussed both the P.C.P. backing vocal lyrics and the No Surface All Feeling coda here in the past, we thought that you may be interested in the following info that has been very kindly provided by Dave Eringa (who as you will know from one of our previous posts, also explained how Richey didn't play any guitar on NSAF).


P.C.P. backing vocal lyrics
"I asked James, and after listening to the track to check, he told me that he sings: 'P.C.P. gives me no home'."


No Surface All Feeling coda
"The swirling sound at the end of No Surface is simply a very deep flanger on the whole drum kit. We recorded that coda a year later on the sessions for the b-sides of Design For Life (I think) & we were in a different studio with a different drum kit, so of course sonically it didn't match at all & my solution to that was just to put all the drums in one speaker & flange them to hell to make it sound fucked up & (hopefully) cool & to mask the edit!"


Hope this may be of interest to some of you.

Thank you for your time & Stay Beautiful,

R*E*P*E*A*T

Genuinely fascinating cheers! Finally puts to bed that old rumour that Richey was playing the rhythm guitar on the outro of NSAF

It's what usually gives a guitar a wavey sound (of walking abortion and revol for instance and particularly THB live) so weird to hear it being used on the drums but the reasons why make sense. Make something sound super weird to draw people's attention away from the slight change in sound. Wonder if there was a similar reason for the reverse recorded drumming on SYMM.

They used flange on the drums on ‘Me And Stephen Hawking’ also on parts.

Good info, thanks!

If anyone is interested: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flanging

Just don’t step on Panthro’s samoflange (Thundercats gag).

NSAF’s coda always sounded odd through headphones.

Those ADFL b-sides sounded much better than the muffled album, though. Most of all the drums.

It sounds like a bass guitar with massive distortion on it to my ears.
