Reflections on New Fast Automatic Daffodils - All Over My Face (1991)

Referenced via: played on 2 November 1991 - released through Play It Again Sam.

All Over My Face (1991) - note watercast of male genitalia

The first single on the record hunt and I have little to add to my write-up of the track from 2 November 1991. The 4 track EP is bolstered by two superfluous remixes which do little except bolster the volume of the guitars and put back the swearing which the radio edit covers with a car horn.  The 4th track is a percussion and bass lead instrumental called Why The Hard Man Fail.

Personal interest comes from the fact that All Over My Face was recorded over my father's 50th birthday weekend in August 1991. The only time he has ever had a surprise party thrown in his honour and a particularly emotional moment when he was given a present of a painting of the boat he served in during his navy service which is still hanging in my parents' house now.  A thoroughly good time was had by all.

Also, kudos to whoever decided that the photo of a pool of water needed enlivening with some positively pornographic manipulation of the water. At least, I don't think that's an elephant's head on the front cover.
