- Gas appearance on Julian Cope
This version of "Books" was recorded in Gene Pool's lounge and from memory the vocals were
done acoustically direct into one channel of the cassette recorder with the other microphone picking up the other instruments.
The line-up for this recording was Ian (vocals, electric guitar, accidental acoustic guitar ambience), Gene Pool (keyboard
and backing vocals), with a percussion sample lifted from the Echo & the Bunnymen version of "Books" played from another
cassette recorder through a guitar amp. We have merged the lyrics from the Teardrop
& Bunnymen versions of "Books".
