Another stumper for me. I heard this in either 1981 or 1982.
I have always had a working title of 'crushed by 3 fingers
of bone' but of course have no idea of the title or
artist. Anyone who can help has my huge thanks in advance.

There was this guy once who was compiling a bunch of CD's to make some sort of box set, and he was also trying to identify this song. Only he heard it as "Touched by 3 Fingers of Bone". I don't know if he ever identified it. This isn't the same person, is it? If not, who was that, I know he's out there.

I don't know this, but it sounds kind of like the Box. Yes? No?

I don't think it's the Box Bill. Too early for them I suspect. However, the vocal does remind one of Jean Marc in a way.

According to allmusic.com there was a band
called TV 21 (with Ian Brodie of Lightning Seeds)
that released a new wave type song called "waiting for the drop"
in 1981
This lyric is in your song. I would guess this could be your answer

Hey Crash -

I think you've got it. I went into Allmusic and
it makes sense - the year is about right, they
list a trumpet player and it's the right musical

Now comes the harder part, finding a copy.

Thanks ever so much for coming up with this.

Go to Gemm, the album is called A Thin Red Line, it's listed as Thin Red Line at Gemm. 7 different people are currently selling it. I have the album. I have the album for the song "Snakes and Ladders" which I'm sure you'll like as well. It's a little eerie how much it sounds like The Box.

Dave -

Although GEMM had 7 different copies listed, so far
not a single vendor has responded to the enquiries.

A long time ago, I gave up on them because of
unsatisfactory service.

I appreciate the tip, but I suspect it will take a
while to actually find this.
