A Few Chairs - S/T (Cassette Only, '86)


Mimi Raiter - Guitar/Vocals
Marty Schwarzbauer - Bass/Vocals
Aaron Temple - Drums

A Few Chairs were around in the mid-80's and re-emerged as Skeleton Closet at some point in the 90's too. This tape was officially released but I don't have a copy anymore and I don't think the cover is going to turn up anytime soon so I'm going with what I've got. Not having the cover also means I don't know many of the song titles, Mimi or Marty if you want to help out please do! I think this is from 1986. Got most of the track names, thanks Hans!

OK, full disclosure - I know nothing about this tape or the Eugene Electronic Music Collective's history.  Also don't know if the solo tapes they mention in the notes to this cassette ever were released.  Anyone who'd like to fill us in with more information is more than welcome to do so in the comments. Thanks to Robert Shepard for digging this one out of the attic and sharing it with us!
