It Was All A Big Mistake…

…Or was it?

The promo for ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ single came in exactly the same digi-pak design as the actual release. The promo is 1-track only, with the official single backed with three other tracks.

If you ever come across this single, take a look inside and you may just find yourself a wee rarity.

I’ve Seen Everything

The second album from TCS came in this excellent digi-pak design.

As the band would admit, a much darker album than debut ‘Cake’, although ‘ISE’ did make it into the UK charts – nestling in at number 50.

This release included a John Douglas artwork print – I wonder what the originals are worth?

A favourite of mine is ‘Hayfever’ – the first single from second album ‘I’ve Seen Everything’.

A sing-a-long tune with clever melodies and lyrics. I love the reference to Moscow. Being from Ayrshire I appreciated the humour.

‘Hayfever’ was the first TCS single to grace the UK charts, entering at No.61 in April of ’93, and leaving – in a blaze of glory – a week later.

The Box

This special limited edition collectors’ box was designed to hold the ‘Hayfever’ CD single, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ CD album, ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ CD single.

The final CD that should have completed the box was the planned ‘Bloodrush’ single, but this was only ever released as a US promo, therefore the anchor on the spine of these CDs was incomplete.
