Request: Erth - S/T Mini-Album (1986)

Postby Poodle » Mon Jan 19, 2015 8:39 am

Now I'm sure this request was made a couple years back, but unfortunately we were left with zilch. This San Diego, California band---Eric Koch (lead vocals, bass guitar), Ted Koch (drums), Rick Easley (guitars), and Jim Kinney (synthesizers)---seems to be a favorite of my good friend Danielwaver (aka 80zforever). On the "Rare Hits of the 80s" mixes, I heard the songs "Dreaming of You" and "Introspection". Erth had a New-Romantic-meets-modern-rock sound, full of heavy synths, and the guitars were more melodic than crunchy. If any of you guys out there have this record, sharing is much appreciated. Thank you everyone in advance!

I have played this awesome record to death, so there's some minor surface noise in silent passages. poodle, did you hear this first on my youtube channel?

I heard some surface noise, but I don't mind it really. It doesn't stop me from enjoying the music.

Thank you so much Daniel, I waited so long for this!!! :D

They have a few unreleased songs that I am getting through one of the band members. Should be interesting.

I just heard Dreaming Of You on a compilation and would be interested to hear this. Would anyone be able to share this again? Very appreciated.

Uvox, thanks. Really nice track.

Never know the band. Would love to have the original EP as well. The posted link is dead.
