A. Front

“Perfect Crime” is a 1989 single by Shrine Of Eight. The track was originally released in 1987 under the title “Burning Rain” by the band Crazy House formed by David Luckhurst and Peter Parsons. Fast forward to 1989 the guys renamed the band Shrine Of Eight and and re-released a new remix of “Burning Rain” retitling it “Perfect Crime”. “Perfect Crime” was the only single released by Shrine Of Eight. Although a stellar track the single failed chart during either release.

The “Islamix” contains dialogue from the 1947 film The Bishops Wife starring Cary Grant.

    I have never heard of this band or the track but have downloaded it any way. I can only assume I was hypnotised by your awesome new logo!

  6. Chris Says:


    Any chance for the Generic Mix or Genetic Mix of Burning Rain (off the 12″ vinyl)?

    This song is one of my favorite obscure 80’s gems. The drums in the original always reminded me of Killing Joke.




  7. The Doctor Says:

    Another cool track I’ve never heard of before! Looks like “All Those Eyes” is a non-album B-side, too, at least according to what I could find on Discogs…

    Off to Amazon and eBay to see if I can dig up any of their albums! 🙂
