Need help IDing and old Twee song from old Mixtape

Post by mikedesert » Tue Apr 25, 2017 11:46 pm

From a tape my friend made me around 1991....the tape also has Heavenly, Velocity Girl, The Springfields, and others. I lost the track listing long ago...any help would be hugely appreciated!
Thanks!

I remembered this thread and it bothered me, so I asked the incredible Heinz Brossolat. He asked his friend Jörg, and Jörg came up with Lorelei!

Wish I'd seen this thread, I would have ID'd it instantly :D

Great song, from their only release with original singer Jina Yi (later of Racecar).

Hmmm, all i remember of Lorelei was much more hard-edged. I was thinking it was a Waaah Dufflecoats/Cudgels-style deep cut.
