Close Up Over: “Jauqq” (Bytes, 1993)

Close Up Over is one of several aliases behind the tracks on Bytes, the first collection of tracks from The Black Dog, at the time a collective consisting of mainstay Ken Downie as well as Andy Turner and Ed Handley, who left the group to focus on collaborating as Plaid. Close Up Over is one of Handley’s solo monikers (Balil is another) and his talent for rhythm and melody is evident even on these early pieces.
