Cricket | Brown Cow

Not much is known about this album. Cricket was an early name for The Huntingtons. One demo of theirs called Joe Christmas Playin’ on the Stereo had a cover of Lifesavers’ “Jet Plane.” Another demo called One Side Has Covers, The Other Side Doesn’t had a mash-up of “In the Ghetto / Suspicious Minds / Skinny Skins.” It was kind of like the lyrics to “In the Ghetto” mixed with the music of “Skinny Skins,” then added to the chorus of “Suspicious Eyes,” ending with a few snippets of “Skinny Skins” lyrics. This demo seemed to be a compilation of several demos, including both covers.
