One of the bands from the early 1980's Cluster of Nuts. The second thread being the New Saint George


Dusk to Dawn

Nightwatch, 1996, Poke Records, PROD008-LE, Cassette / 33MW106 CD

Well... A band where 'eclectic' does not mean it collects tunes from the corners of Europe but that it tips its hat to 1970's jazz fusion, picks up the odd classical reference, drifts into a dream sequence or two but one where the returns to folk tunes still do work. It's not obvious how you would dance to the more disconnected tracks but it would be really fun to try.
