Jon American Car - Demo

One of the requests that has come into the CCPS offices over the years is about, well, what we're posting today. Huge thanks for former Chapter 16/Chupacabra member Yutaka Dirks for getting in touch with us last month and passing us a pile of tapes. We're starting with this because, well, the people demand it.

Yutaka describes Jon American Car as "members of AKA go emo", and we can't argue with that because (a) we're not sure who was in the band (so we'll assume it was members of AKA) and (b) it does sound a lot more emo than anything AKA did.

We're having difficulties tagging the songs on this tape; both sides are unlabeled, and there is effectively one track on each side (and a crap load of empty space). One track may be two that bleed together. We're extremely unsure.

What else is new?

Update: thanks to Shaun Cowan for filling us in on the band membership via our facebook page. Membership included folks from Nine Miles to Morgan and AKA/All Rights Reserved.

I still remember one of those songs was "old faithful" but won't be able to tell you which one.

The songs are in the wrong order.

Track 1 is Bright Eyes
Track 2 is Old Faithful

But on the tape it goes:

Side A - Old Faithful
Side B - Bright Eyes

Daniella on drums
Cam on bass
Dave on guitar & vocals

I LOVED this band for the brief time they existed and saw almost every show they played, maybe all of them.
They changed their name to The Ellen Jamesian Society, played a small handful of gigs, mainly at The Blue House and then that was it.

I have a copy of this tape so I can scan and send the insert if someone tells me where to send the image to...
