In 1991 every good group had either broken up or transformed itself into a maraca and tambourine shaking bunch of prats, doing why-te boy dancing to a clumsy "Funky Drummer" beat,dressed in flares and stripy tops;....not Jackdaw With Crowbar. Wading against the tide of indifference posed by "E" culture, they resisted the dance revolution,and were ignored. But,now we have forgotten tits like 'the Beloved' and their hideous ilk, one can rediscover Jackdaw's dark days via this early nineties casstte release. Don't ask me any information on the contents of this crom-dioxid wonder,but it does contain a shiney rainbow of cuts spanning their career up to this point. Of course including not only the obligatory reworking of "Iceberg", but other delights like "Banjo Thatch" and an undisco version of Cash's "Ring Of Fire". We await their new ep...out soon apparently.

3- Ring Of Fire (mp3)
