Crime – (“Friends” connection)

“Baby You’re So Repulsive”

Of course, it’s about ghouls (link from the wayback machine)

Crawling Out The Ground, I see my friends around….All my friends coming out tonight.

I just found this shot of Crime playing the song “Baby You’re So Repulsive” in 1976 or summick.

This tune was the inspiration for me inventing the basic structure of the Crawling Chaos tune “Friends”. It’s cracked me up after I heard it on Peely one night, and that was it! The rest followed from a different inspirational source – from the very end 20 secs of Bowie’s “Andy Warhol” off Hunky Dory. It used to be a good gig opener after the bit of keyboard & guitar distraction that we did, for everyone to warm up.

As an experiment, fire up each video. a minute apart and start Bowie first and Crime after 0:30 (videos have changed from originals).  Then adjust the levels to suit (Bowie a lot quieter!).

Warhol, War HOLE…
