I recorded this song on tape many years ago and I still don't have a clue who that is. Any help or hints would be very much appreciated.

From John C. Jones, 6/3/2004 3:19:08 PM:

sounds so familiar, think it's an early 90's track.
Was it taped from CFNY ?

From Peter, 6/3/2004 5:32:09 PM:

No, it been taped from German radio.

From John C. Jones, 6/3/2004 5:44:46 PM:

Peter, do you remember the year ?

From Peter, 6/3/2004 5:55:16 PM:

Actually I think it was late 80's rather than beginning of 90's. When I taped it, it faded into another song which was from a dutch band called The Essence. I got this album and it is from 1987. So the song I am looking for must be from 1987 or even earlier.

The band is Caterwaul - I'm not sure which song yet (I'd recognize Betsy Martin's voice anywhere). It's probably off either their THe Nature Of THings album or the Pin & Web album - I'll have a listen and post the correct song later.

From Jason Fiber, 6/4/2004 2:16:53 AM:

The song is "Manna & Quail" (by Caterwaul) - but it's actually from a compilation released on Geffen called "Scream" - which was, sort of, a soundtrack to an influential club here in Los Angeles in the mid '80s. The song was later re-recorded for Caterwaul's 3rd album "Portent Hue" on IRS Records.

Thanks very much Jason. I've never heard of the band before but the song is great.

It's me!

Hey, neat! Never heard of either Caterwaul or Purrmachine, but I'm sitting here listening to Purrmachine on http://www.garageband.com/artist/purrmachine right now. Great stuff!
