Remixed from the album 'Levitate' in 1997.
Label manager Julia's son Basil appears on the single version, speaking a verse especially written for a child:
'...if only to flee 'neath the green web cross wire mesh fence and enter into the masquerade'.
It was quite a tongue-twister and took a few takes.
The single version of Masquerade is included on the last playlist compiled by the late John Peel, on his show for bbc radio one.
