I dont usually post back to back on the same artist but I found another St Vitus Dance tune and it didnt quite fit with the original post hence the second shot. This track was recorded off Radio Ulster I think, probably ‘The Bottom Line’ with Mike Edgar. It sounds quite different to the album version so I’m guessing it’s a demo, maybe even the version that was on that flexi disc I mentioned in the last post. For me though this one nails it, is that just because its the one I listened to all these years? As usual if anyone would care to add more detail, anecdotes corrections etc please leave a comment below.
You got it. Same as flexi-disc. It may be taken from BBC TV session for Janice Long which was criminally cut short for live TV in 1986/7.
Wasn’t Janice Long but whatever. Found some other unreleased tracks from around that period on you tube- bland bliss baby (St Vitus Dance Mk3) and weather (Hooray Henry sessions)
Thanks for the tip! The rips are not the best but the tracks themselves sound great..
St Vitus Dance – Bland Bliss Baby

You are indeed correct . I played lead guitar on this track which was originally released as a flexidisc on Good Vibs through a fanzine the name of which escapes me. Blah Blah Blah also featured on the disc . It may have been played on local radio and a different version ended up on ‘Love me love my dogma ‘. St vitus dance are pretty much with the same line up and have just released a new record ‘bystanders’ on Probe Plus. Thanks for digging Mohammed out . I’d not heard it in years .
Hi Phil, remember also the ‘Close your eyes and think of this’ cassette from 1986? Sean Doran
