LEAD ME ASTRAY If I turn out the lights Will you put up a fight? Spread me like butter Mosquito bites I’m wearing a sweater And it’s late at night You’re drooling like a fish Enhance my desire My thoughts are distorting My body is contorting You satisfy my craving And lead me astray! Take me for a ride tonight Caress me in the moonlight I feel like an ashtray Better hold on tight Cat’s tongues are rough But your flesh tastes just right You’ve got me so I’m melting to the floor
Now I can´t be sure of my feelings Whether they are right or wrong Whether thay are right or wrong I´m running off in all directions And I´m hoping that it´s not Going to take this long And there´s a price you pay for pride But who can I trust? Now who can I trust? I´m surrounded in a light opens all arond me Thundershowers in ivory towers I see the rain coming down It´s coming down on you When the sun comes up I´ll leave this place And start looking for another life to live It´s all in the dreams you´re dreaming It´s all in the amount of time you give People will come back and people will go away But the ones you trust are not the ones who wish they stayed I see the rain coming down It´s coming down on you Thundershowers in ivory towers Coming down on you But what´s important is experience And by that time you will know Over and over they´ll come back again But what´s important is experience And by that time you will know


Artoffact Records presents a 30th anniversary reissue of Psyche's first 12" release, Thundershowers (In Ivory Towers) b/w Lead Me Astray.

The original independent 12" that helped launch Psyche's career in Canada is back, presented in a replica sleeve and with full audio remastering. Thundershowers (In Ivory Towers) includes two mixes of the title track, as well as two remixes of the wonderful b-side Lead Me Astray. Both tracks exemplify the aggressive vocal-driven brand of synthpop that would make Psyche famous. Neither track was ever released on any proper Psyche studio album, making this a delight for collectors and synthpop fans alike.

The reissue also includes some cool replicas of vintage artifacts: an insert contains a replica of the poster for the Thundershowers release show at Toronto's Nuts and Bolts club. Take yourself back to 1985 when these lined the streets of Yonge and Dundas! A special invitation card replica is also included, which happily enough doubles as an MP3 download code. The original invitation was actually the very first appearance of Psyche's now-famous logo!

This wonderful reissue is thus not only the starting point of Psyche's long lasting career creating international synthpop club hits; it is also a snapshot of the history of Toronto's fantastic nightclub scene.
