Ultravox cover: "A Friend I Call Desire"

Post by antilles » Tue Jan 18, 2011 11:06 pm

We made a cover version of "A Friend I Call Desire" from the Lament album. A very underrated Ultravox track.

Take a listen: http://antilles.dk/mp3/desire.mp3

Synth used:
Korg MS-20
Hohner String Melody II
Roland JD-800
SCI Pro One
Korg Triton

...and Korg Polysix from the Legazy plug-in.
