Typhoon Saturday – What Do I Do?
1 Star 1

I don’t know much about Sheffield’s Typhoon Saturday, but I love this track! They seemed to release just three 7″ singles and then broke up. Members like drummer Anthony “Tich” Critchlow went on to form Living in a Box (remember them?) and guitarist Nick Robinson went on to most notably They Must be Russians, Comsat Angels, and a bunch of solo projects (he’s also a practitioner of origami according to wikipedia).

Of course this story has a Liverpool connection… This single was produced by Steve Lindsay (bassist in Deaf School, Big in Japan (for 4 months), The Planets, etc.). I read that Typhoon Saturday pretty much hated his production of the song, but the label, Polydor, and their manager didn’t give them any other option but to release it as is. Yeah, it is a bit 80s “over produced,” but I still think it’s great.

Listen to Typhoon Saturday – What Do I Do?

  1. The demos we made in Sheffield had so much power, which was lost on the official release. Personally, I think the B side better reflected our musical space. Quite amazed to find this on the web ;)

  2. Thanks Nick! Gosh, I’d love to hear those demo versions someday. Do they still exist in some form?
