About the song Edit
The song was released as the B-side to "T.V.O.D." in 1978, the only single by Miller's musical project The Normal. It was the very first release on his Mute Records label, and an early example of the then-burgeoning industrial music genre. The lyrics of the song reference J.G. Ballard's controversial 1978 novel Crash.
Miller plays a series of sawtooth waves on a Korg 700S synthesizer on the recording. The track was recorded using 2 ReVox B-77 tape machines in Daniel Miller's apartment.

See the breaking glass In the underpass See the breaking glass In the underpass Warm leatherette Hear the crushing steel Feel the steering wheel Hear the crushing steel Feel the steering wheel Warm leatherette Warm leatherette Warm leatherette Melts on your burning flesh You can see your reflection In the luminescent dash Warm leatherette A tear of petrol Is in your eye The hand brake Penetrates your thigh Quick - Let's make love Before you die On warm leatherette Warm leatherette Warm leatherette Warm leatherette Warm leatherette Join the car crash set
