The first song ever recording by The Fringe (UK 1990s) was New Star, recorded at The Fortress studios in Farringdon, London, on tape!
it was a short song with a repetitive guitar note for an intro. After line up changes and relocation to their own studio The Fringe re-recorded it with an added verse. Then, a few years later after The Fringe finished, three members of The Fringe became Junkstone, and they recorded it again.
Three versions of the same song may sound good to fans of cover versions and a waste of time and resources to others, but it is interesting to hear the progression of the band as they honed their craft.
