i LOVE all Lindsey's versions of Deep Dense. he claims there's the fast and the slow version. all different versions we know from the 90s are about the same [mid]tempo so i have no clue what he means by the slow and the fast.

if you do the search here on The Ledge you will find several discussion threads on Deep Dense since i've been on LB for several years to perform it live, which he usually just laughed off.
for whatever reason i just googled it and somebody uploaded some of his VERY VERY rough demos of it here - the first 2 versions are not as bad as the Fritz version that Xavier shared but they are pretty cringeworthy

3 different versions:
  • The first one is labelled as "Cassette Demo".
  • The second is listed as "Track 1"
  • The third is listed as "Track 2" = the more polished version that we know and love!

"kind of weird: a tribute to the dearly departed from a band that can treat its living like trash"
