Discatch - Mind the Gap (1992)
Here's another tape from David Tighe. We don't know what to make of this one - it's not that it's bad, it's just... an anomaly in terms of the stuff we expected to hear from a Calgary band in 1992. The two guys in Discatch put together a really well-produced and crafted tape full of electronica that is part Depeche Mode, part Big Audio Dynamite (circa The Globe), part Nine Inch Nails (circa Pretty Great Machine). Actually, there's a fair amount of overlap in those three. Anyways, they took this so seriously they recorded this at Richard Harrow's Living Room Studios.
This tape takes us back to three-for-one highball nights at the Republik. The parts we can remember, anyways.
