  • 1. Some Say (Original Mix)
  • 2. Some Say (Pocketknife Mix)

Recently discovered song from the archive of Arthur Russell, recorded and engineered by disco legend Bob Blank at his Connecticut-based studio. Produced and mixed by Arthur in 1985 for a solo project of Steven Hall’s that was originally intended for release on Rough Trade Records.


“Some Say” features Arthur’s classic cello basslines, cracking boom bap drums and Steven’s floating vocals and synth pads. In true Arthur fashion, the song abrubtly stutters, slinks and lurches halfway through for Steven to complete his Buddhist pop mantra. The B-side features an extended rework of “Some Say” by Pocketknife using Arthur’s BOSS Dr. Rhythm DR-55 drum machine.
