Cassandra’s Ears, Private Wasteland (1988)
I didn’t know Cassandra’s Ears at the time – but if I’d heard them I reckon I would have been right on board, could have gone nicely with the Schnell-Fenster I was so obsessed with (and still am to this day). But I did know about Jan Hellriegel right from when her first solo album was released, and then I interviewed her about her comeback, have since chatted with her several times, consider her a friend – one of few in the industry (it’s never a smart move for me – or for anyone else if I’m involved) and it was through her reissue/compilation of The Cassandra’s Ears Story that I got hooked. Recently found this wee gem. It stands up. It’s good. I like it a lot.
