RANDOM POST: HORSE / FLUKE

Over at Across The Kitchen Table, Drew had a great story about going to see lost Scottish band Horse. That reminded me I had a couple of Fluke remixes of their 1993 single “Celebrate”.

 

Horse was both group and solo artist, named after the lead singer. She is still releasing music today. Of the Tube episode that Drew recounts, Horse says “Unbeknown to Horse and Angela [her writing partner] a friend George Cathro had sent a demo to the main researcher from the TUBE. February 87. This was after the final name change to Horse – Angela’s suggestion. One evening the provisional call came to ask if they would be interested in appearing on the show. Within a week the appearance was scheduled for March. The week prior to their appearance they went to Newcastle to see the studio etc. Black was soundchecking ‘the sweetest smile’ (Colin Vearncombe ) Beautiful and inspiring.The following week a busload of friends and fans made the journey for the first national live tv show. Over 6 million people saw the programme. It was repeated on the Saturday and by the Monday the switchboard was apparently jammed with calls about Horse.” More of her personal bio here.
