Come, 1994

"Loose!" was originally conceived for Glam Slam Ulyssesan "interactive musical experience" loosely based on Homer's Odyssey that was written by Prince and performed for only a few weeks in late summer 1993 at his Glam Slam nightclub in Minneapolis. The forward-thinking track was then resurrected for Come. Featuring a screamed "1-2-3-4" count-off that sounds like Prince might've been listening to fellow Warner Bros. labelmates Boredoms, the song is warped-mirror electro, full of twisted guitar, synths and backing vocals that foresaw the work of artists like the Knife.
