TVD | Friday @ Random

However un-randomly, the Jellyfish arc comes full circle and to a close this week with Imperial Drag--a band borne from the ashes of the band itself. Jellyfish keyboardist/songwriter Roger Manning's subsequent outfit pairs him with Eric Dover, the guitarist brought aboard for Jellyfish's live dates in support of 'Spilt Milk.' Although quite OK, listeners looking for that unique something (me...ahem) that Jellyfish possessed might be left scratching their heads--which is unfair, but there you have it. Imperial Drag lasted for just this release and a tour.

MORE interesting for me is the band Andy Sturmer contributes to these days. I think they bear a strong resemblance to one band in particular, but I just can't put my finger on it. Hmm.

Imperial Drag - 'Breakfast' By Tiger (Kiss It All Goodbye) (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Boy Or A Girl (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Dandelion (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - Scaredy Cats & Egomaniacs (Mp3)
Imperial Drag - The Man In The Moon (Mp3)

Thanks for all the Jellyfish posts...this is a band I've loved since Bellybutton came out, and all these obscure tracks are a treat from the past. Thanks for the great blog and great writing.
