The Band....

Cygnus was a short-lived labour of love in 1989.... plenty of talent, but personality clashes between the  male lead singer and others, plus his financial and girlfriend problems resulted in the band's premature demise. These songs were recorded on an 8 track in a garage, so the quality is not marvellous.... add to that the singers sharing one microphone and doing the vocals in one take.... soooo..... we will see.
