Suffer the children - Tears for Fears

Taken from their debut album 'The Hurting', 'Suffer the children' was actually Tears for Fears's debut single. According to Curt Smith: ''Suffer The Children' was the first song we did together when we left Graduate. It was our very first experimentation with sequencers and drum machines, with a guy called David Lord, who worked with Peter Gabriel and different people down in Bath. So that was actually the first song we did as Tears For Fears.'

The 12" single featured three tracks that were never included in any of the compilations and re-releases on cd: an extended remix, an instrumental version and the B-side 'Wino', which is probably the simplest track Tears for Fears ever recorded: just guitar and voice.

My collection: 12" single no. 87
Found: London, 1989
Cost: 2,5 pounds
