Jonathan Fire*Eater

I never paid this band any mind until my buddy Lou Santos came along and made me start listening to them. I was, I must admit, quite surprised by how much I liked them.

Now you can either surprise (or remind) yourself.

Don't feel obligated to, however.

I found the two singles from Wolf Songs For Lambs in London, and the split at the once legendary record store I used to manage (until it was raided by the feds), Midnight Records.

I don't remember where the other record came from. Perhaps it rose from the dead?

I never did see this band, although I have seen and enjoyed The Walkmen on several occasions. I didn't like them much the first few times, but they were great at Barnard that one time some years ago.

Great post! I've been meaning to give them a good listen ever since I got into the Walkmen. Thank you!
