01: instant street
02: there
03: everybodyís weird (demo version)
+ instant street video in quicktime format

OK I confess- Rudy is hardly on this cd. He makes a brief appearance in the Instant street video (keep an eye open when Tom Barman and the others leave Cafť d'Anvers- Rudy's disguised as one of the cops), but thatís where it ends. Still- it makes this discography more impressiveÖ!:)

When I heard Instant street for the first time- the first new dEUS material in over two years back then- I didn't like it one bit. And I still donít, as the matter a fact. Okay, the guitar riff at the end saves the track a bit, but I especially loathe the banjo at the beginning.
There is a nice, acoustic Palace inspired song by Tom Barman solo on his guitar. Nice, but hardly revolutionary. Everybodyís weird is in my book the best song on the The ideal crash-album, and I even like this demo version better. The synth in this version is so deliciously eighties- I like it a lot. The sound is also a lot less polished than the album version, it reminds me more of the old dEUS than of the new one. If all tracks on The ideal crash would be released in their early demo incarnations, Iíd personally like it a lot better I bet.
If you're buying this: make sure to get the right version. There is also an instant street cd1 for sale at the same price, but without the videoclip on the cd, ŗnd the Belgian release of this cd2 doesn't have the video on it. Great.
