Fin de Siècle Demos

Recorded: 1997-1998

We don’t really know much about the Fin de Siècle demo. A couple of tracks features the Rarities album:
  • The Certainty Of Chance’: an early version with different lyrics. The music was already featuring Joby Talbot in the credits, which tells us they put it together.
  • An instrumental of ‘Generation Sex’: the music was quite finished, but the lyrics were not done yet. Actually it must have not been named yet at that time because the working title of the song actually was ‘La Dolce Vita’. [1]
