WHITE SPIRIT- Backs to the Grind, c/w Cheetah 7″ (Neat Records, UK, 1980

I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just started watching Lars von Trier’s “Antichrist” and after the first (intense!) 10 minutes, I started realizing that I had a WHITE SPIRIT song on my mind. Whatever may be responsible for this most extraordinary association (you tell me!), here I am, taking a short break from watching the film, ripping and posting WHITE SPIRIT’s first 7″. It contains the great “Backs to the Grind” track (with some nice cheesy organ) and “Cheetah”, the song that made me sit down and write these lines. “Cheetah” must be played in the month-long burial ceremony of mine. Promise? Okay, and now back to the movie.

PS: Somebody care to transcribe the lyrics of “Cheetah”? What’s he singing in the chorus? I’m humming along since 30 years now and I’m sick of it. I finally wanna know what he sings!

PS 2: Yeah, the crackling. Go and buy an official reissue of this.
